Former York-Adams League coach Steve Elsier to lead Plum girls' basketball team

  • Former Biglerville boys' coach Steve Elsier has taken over the girls' basketball team at Plum.
  • Elsier led Biglerville to a 13-10 overall record last season.
  • The Plum girls finished 10-13 overall a season ago.

A summer search at Plum High School has landed a new varsity girls' basketball coach.

Steve Elsier, the boys' varsity coach at Biglerville High School in the York-Adams League the past eight seasons, takes over for Lindsy Muchnock, who resigned after one season with the Mustangs to accept the girls' coaching job at Hempfield.

.

“I am very excited to get started,” said Elsier, who was hired earlier this month in a vote by the Plum School Board. “I had a chance to meet some of the returning girls. I look forward to implementing my system, keeping the numbers up and working with the feeder programs.”

Elsier, an Indiana University of Pennsylvania graduate, took a Biglerville boys' program that won just two games his first year and turned it into a district playoff qualifier two of the past three seasons. The squad completed the 2016-17 campaign 13-10 overall and played in the postseason. Elsier had a 48-129 career record at Biglerville.

Plum hopes to build on last year's 10-13 overall record, which included a 6-6 mark in Section 4-5A and a trip to the WPIAL playoffs. The Mustangs fell to Trinity, 61-20, in the first round.

It was recently announced that Brandon Staub was taking over the Biglerville boys' program. Staub has spent the past four years as a girls' assistant coach for the highly successful Delone Catholic girls' team..

The 32-year-old Staub is a 2003 graduate of Littlestown High.
