Rhlyn Rouse has emerged as a star for York Tech girls' basketball, and she'll continue her career at the college level.

The senior made her decision official at a ceremony last week, committing and signing with Lock Haven University. Rouse had kept her decision private until she and her family members revealed their Bald Eagle shirts in unison.

Last season, Rouse averaged 24 points and 13 rebounds per game for a 3-18 Spartans team. She became the first player in York Tech history to reach 1,000 career points, and she will enter her senior season with 1,224 points while also chasing 1,000 rebounds.

Rouse was one of many local talents who has signed to play college sports in recent weeks. The signing period for a wide range of sports opened Nov. 9, with the basketball early period closing on Nov. 16. The regular basketball signing window begins in April, while football has signing periods starting Dec. 21 and Feb. 1. For other sports, there is no official break in signing periods between now and August.
