GIRLS BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK: Daniel Boone great Lutz to enter Berks Basketball Hall of Fame

By Darryl Grumling

During a stellar career at Daniel Boone that concluded in the 1979-80 season, Page Lutz established herself as one of the best girls basketball players in Berks Conference history.
Though its been more than three decades since Lutz graduated, her legacy has pretty much stood the test of time.
In area girls history, only Daniel Boone’s Wendy Davis has scored more career points.
Lutz will be inducted into the Berks County Basketball Hall of Fame next month as part of the seven-member 2013 class.
At Boone, Lutz scored a school and area-record 1,899 points, a mark that stood until Davis broke it eight years later on the way to a 2,504-point career. 
Lutz went on to play collegiately at Elizabethtown, and helped the Blue Jays compiled a 105-11 record over four years — highlighted by a national championship her sophomore year and two other runner-up finishes.
A three-time All-American selection who was named Division III Player of the Year in 1984, Lutz scored 1,757 career points at Elizabethtown, and holds school career records for points, free throws (453)and field goals (651). She was the MVP of the national tournament in 1983 and 1984, and in 206 was named to the NCAA Division III 25th Anniversary Women’s Basketball team.
