Greater Latrobe's Sobota makes points at William & Mary
Jen Sobota's run at becoming the all-time leading scorer in women's basketball at the College of William & Mary (Va.) took a left turn in one recent game, when she went without a field goal for only the second time in her four-year college career.
Sobota, a Greater Latrobe High School graduate, scored just two points on free throws in a 66-53 loss to George Mason University on Feb. 27. But she came back to notch a team-high 17 in an 83-44 loss to Old Dominion University three days later, putting her in position to exceed Lynn Norenberg's total of 1,500 points from 1978 to 1981.
Sabota, a 5-foot-4 senior guard, needed 22 points to move into the top spot with two regular-season games remaining.
William & Mary was to close out its regular season with home games against Virginia Commonwealth University on Thursday and a rematch with Old Dominion today before the start of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament.
Second-team selections included senior forward Morgan Foley of St. Vincent and sophomore forward Megan Buck of Seton Hill. Cassandra Cutts of St. Vincent and Alanna Daniels and Cortni McGinnis of Seton Hill were among those named as honorable mentions. Daniels, a guard, was named to the all-North freshman team.
Sophomore guard Kennon Roberts and senior guard Chris Williams of St. Vincent joined Washam on the all-AMC North Division first team.
