Wyomissing standout and Umass commit Annie McCaffrey

The calendar has flipped to March and Wyomissing's girls basketball team is still undefeated.  "Honestly, it hasn't sunk in yet. It probably won't for a little while," Annie McCaffrey told SV Sports' Paul Roberts.  The (28-0) Spartans beat top-seeded Delone Catholic 45-32 in the District 3-4A championship.  Wyomissing has won back-to-back District 3 and Berks County titles for the first time in school history.  McCaffrey is an All-State soccer player who's committed to UMass.  She's not too shabby on the court either.  The 5'9 senior forward was an All-County selection in hoops this year.  "She is the heart and soul and she's been like that since seventh grade," said head coach Aaron Anders.  McCaffrey continues to come through on the big stage.  She had 14 points in the BCIAA semifinals against Gov. Mifflin.  Two days later, McCaffrey dropped 16 points in the Berks County championship versus Wilson.  Both of those games were at Santander Arena in Reading.  Her defensive effort helped to limit Delone Catholic to 19 points through three quarters at the Giant Center last Thursday.  The Spartans are allowing just 27 points per game.  "I think we just work so good as a team. It's hard to stop a team that works so well together," remarked McCaffrey.  Wyomissing is led by All-State forward Amaya Stewart.  The 6'1 junior finished with 14 points and 18 rebounds in the District 3-4A final.  Stewart is averaging 19 ppg.  Audrey Hurleman, a 5'8 junior, is committed to North Carolina for lacrosse.  She added ten points against the (22-3) Squirettes.  Wyomissing will open the state tournament on Saturday.  The Spartans host Carver High School of Engineering and Science from Philadelphia at 1pm.  McCaffrey is the lone senior in the starting lineup.  Her leadership skills and toughness are invaluable.  "She's a gamer. I'm so proud of her," said Anders.
