Girls Varsity Basketball
Congratulations to Christine Eppler & Rosmery Aguilera who are both college bound and committed to their respective schools.
Rosmery Aguilera committed to Harcum College - Pennsylvania to play for the Lady Bears under Coach Brittany Clark. She will be majoring in Dental Hygiene and working towards the field in Dentistry. Christine Eppler committed to Johnson & Whales University - North Carolina to play for the Lady Wildcats under Coach Jennifer King. She will be majoring in Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management.
Many college recruiters, while competing in New York City, Virginia, Georgia, Washington DC at the AAU Nike National Championships (17U) and other nationally recognized venues, scouted both players.
Both student athletes worked very hard during the off-season in the late winter, spring, summer, and early fall. They played with the nationally recognized and official AAU Nike Travel Team Philadelphia Belles. While traveling all over the country competing against top girl basketball players, both girls new that they had to keep hitting the weight room and the gym to improve their game. That was not all. They needed to make sure that they were on top of their academic studies and making sure that they stayed involved in the community through community service.
Both girls earned a positive image in Berks County through helping our youth. They were busy at the local Olivet Boys & Girls Club, feeding families in need at the Salvation Army Food Bank of Reading, mentoring young women at the Berks Women in Crisis Center and the Hispanic Center of Reading, helping out with kids at the Police Athletic League, and coaching young volleyball and basketball players at our local Primary Elementary Center.
Both of these young women understood the meaning of giving back, working hard, and always-remaining positive for other young student athletes to mirror.
Congratulations to both Christine and Rosmery.

This 2016-2017 team has brought excitement to our district and community. The team has caught the attention of its citizens throughout Berks County who helped fill the gymnasium. The feeling of hope and joy inspired our youth who wish to be a part of this newfound tradition of believing in each other and working hard as a team in the classroom and on the court.
?"We Believe - GO MOUNTS"
Welcome to the start of a new season of Elementary School Girls Basketball. AAU Mt. Penn Lady Vipers represents 4th through 6th grade female students living in the Antietam School District Area. The club was established two years ago under the AAU Lady Scarlet Knights (Est. 2009).
This is a great opportunity for all of our students to learn and play team basketball. There are 19 teams in the Berks County Youth Girls Basketball League representing various school districts in Berks County. These teams are supported by local businesses and volunteer coaches.
Antietam Gear is here. If you are interested in wearing the latest attire, make sure you mention it to a High School Girls Basketball Player. We are looking into distributing a catalog later in December for Chrsitmas.?
