  • Way has her say as Stevenson handles Maine S. Dec 26, 2013 6:57 PM
    In the season of giving, Sophia Way might have been giving too much. Of herself. So Stevenson coach Tom Dineen had a talk with his veteran junior before the Patriots’ game against Mundelein last week. “She’s been trying to do a little too much,” Dineen said. “I told her, ‘Just go play. Have fun. It’s high school basketball.’ She was trying to be the assistant coach, the cheerleader, the team mom, the captain.” In Stevenson’s first contest in Dundee-Crown’s Charger Classic since 2006, Way was the game’s leading scorer and best player on the floor. The sweet-shooting guard dropped in 13 of her 23 points in the opening quarter, as the Patriots bolted to an early lead and never trailed, pulling away for a 68-46 win over Maine South on Thursday.

    Maine West senior Brittany Collins had a hard time describing her feelings after the Warriors defeated Maine South 43-39 for the first time in her four-year career.

She now has 1,653, breaking the mark of 1,648 set by Megan Edwards in 2005.
