OLEY -

The Oley Valley girls basketball team captured a division title within Berks County last year. But the Lynx did not accomplish what they wanted in the county and district tournaments. The team feels like it has what it needs to correct that this year.

Behind 1,000 point scorer Brandi Vallely, Oley returns a talented core of players this season that should allow it to compete for its sixth straight Berks III title.

The Lynx were a young team last season, but they were still one of the best teams in the county. Amanda Rizzuti and Amanda Aulenbach should prove effective outlets for Vallely, as Oley not only has plans for the county tournament, but the district field as well.

Oley Valley is hosting its own tip-off tournament over the weekend.
