When Wheatley High School historians do their research and check the archives years from now on the first time the girls’ varsity basketball team advanced past the area round of the playoffs, there should be a giant photograph of Diamonisha Sophus in the file.
Sophus scored a game-high 37 points, including 13 of her team’s 17 points in the fourth quarter, to lead the Lady Wildcats to a 68-58 victory over Lamar Consolidated and into the regional quarterfinals for the first time in school history.
“Diamonisha has just put us on her shoulders and carried us the past few games,” said Wheatley head coach Rueben Stiff. “There’s not much one or two defenders can do with her. She’s so quick that they can’t keep her in front of them and she can get her shot whenever she wants to.”
