Wyomissing's Coach Aaron Anders catches up with SV Sports

The Wyomissing girls basketball team never shied away from the fact that they hadn't won a Berks County championship. Head coach Aaron Anders and his players talked about it since the beginning of the season. The Spartans made history at Santander Arena on Friday as they cut the nets down for the first time in school history. Second-seeded Wyomissing defeated fourth-seeded Reading 46-28 in the Berks League Final. "Just so proud of these kids, and I need to pinch myself right now," Anders told Paul Roberts of SV Sports. The (23-2) Spartans limited the (14-11) Red Knights to five points in the opening quarter and four in the third period. They're allowing just 28 points per game this season which is #1 in the county. Reading was held scoreless for five minutes and 43 seconds in the fourth quarter. "It takes a mentality and it goes from the top to the bottom. They buy in and they sell out," emphasized Anders. Amaya Stewart controlled the paint and finished with a game-high 18 points. The 6'1 sophomore set the tone with 11 points in the first half. "Ceiling is the limit. She's just going to continue to grow. Every year you're gonna see her add to her game. She stays hungry and humble," said Anders. Stewart was voted the Berks County Player of the Year on Sunday. Anders took home the Coach of the Year award. Alexis Hardy, Annie McCaffrey, and Maddie Campbell scored seven points apiece. Campbell is one of just three seniors on Wyomissing's roster. The Spartans enter the District 3-4A playoffs as the #3 seed. "I'm confident in these kids. I'm confident in the way they play. I'm confident in the way they handle themselves. I'm just so excited for them," remarked Anders.
