Player of the Year Amaya Stewart catches up with SV Sports after Wyomissing's District Championship

The Wyomissing girls basketball team made history on Thursday at the Giant Center. The Spartans defeated #1 seed Delone Catholic 35-30 to win their first District 3 championship. The (24-3) Squirettes had claimed the last two titles in Class 4A. Berks County Player of the Year Amaya Stewart scored a team-high twelve points. "It feels incredible. It's moments that you just can't forget. You gotta cherish every little moment...This is crazy," she said. Third-seeded Wyomissing held Delone Catholic to one point in the first quarter. The Spartans shutout the Squirettes over the final two minutes and twenty seconds. Sophomore forward Audrey Hurleman was a big factor on the defensive end. Stewart remarked, "I'm so proud of her. Her lock up defense is what we need to jell this team together." Hurleman added ten points and converted two clutch free throws with 1:11 remaining. The all-county soccer player gave Wyomissing a 34-30 edge. Alexis Hardy, a sophomore guard, had eight points. The (26-2) Spartans held Delone Catholic 21 points under its season average. Wyomissing has been giving up just 28 points per game, the fewest in the Berks League. The Spartans trailed 13-12 at halftime and 22-21 entering the fourth quarter. Stewart gave credit to all of their fans who traveled to Hershey on Thursday morning. "Having the love and the support from our school makes it ten times better," she said.
