It was quite a year for the senior who brought her grandfather Bill along with her to watch the awards ceremony.
Now Stephanie is moving on with a fully paid athletic Scholarship to La Salle University. Their she will be a La Salle's first ever Girl's Water Polo Team. La Salle, in Philadelphia has never had a girls water polo team before and they will be counting on Stephanie to build the foundation for the very prestigious university.
So this next year, while following college sports, you might want to check in on Stephanie and see how she is doing. I have a hunch, she and LaSalle will be both doing great in Woman's Water Polo.
The exciting thing about awards night is that there aew always lots of stories coming out and as coach,citizens and other athletes contact me with information we hope to have more articles for you!
