SV Sports Interviews Wyomissing's Amaya Stewart
Wyomissing has never won a Berks County championship in girls basketball. The Spartans aren’t ignoring that piece of their history. In fact, they’ve been talking about it often and using it as motivation. “I bring it up a lot because this is what I really want for us. This would be huge,” emphasized forward Amaya Stewart. Wyomissing got off to an (8-0, 2-0) start to the season. The Spartans are averaging 54 points, while allowing just 26.5 per game. Stewart has been a big reason for Wyomissing’s success. The 6’1 sophomore is averaging 15.6 points and nearly 9 rebounds. Stewart had a career-high 23 points against Schuylkill Valley. “She’s got a really, really high ceiling and she just continues to get better and better. She’s gonna be special,” said head coach Aaron Anders. The Spartans have a bright future with nine sophomores on the roster. Seniors Maddie Campbell, Lexi Loeb, and Kaitlyn Brunner provide valuable experience and leadership. Stewart noted that the team has great chemistry. “We always build each other up and it’s not one person picking somebody up, it’s everybody,” stated Stewart. SV Sports also spoke with Stewart about where she would like to play in college, and what she worked on in the offseason.
