NEW CASTLE —
In need of a three-sport star? Look no further than Sikora.
She finished in the top 10 on the court in two major categories —scoring average and free-throw percentage. Sikora also was rewarded with Region 2 second-team honors.
She twice scored a season-high 18 points on the way to a 10.8 points per game average, good enough for ninth in the county. Sikora’s 45 of 65 free-throw shooting was sixth best in the area.
The Lady Greyhounds started the season 1-7, but came on strong by winning three of their last four to finish 9-13.
Sikora also earned second-team honors for her work in volleyball. The junior middle hitter was part of a team that finished the year 10-6 overall.
On the track, Sikora impressed in the District 10 Championships, claiming third in the high jump with a distance of 5-0, fourth in the long jump with a distance of 15-9 and seventh in the triple jump at 32-4.
She finished with a Lawrence County Track and Field honor roll time of 27.0 in the 200.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a pitcher as consistent as Sotter.
In her senior season with the Lady Greyhounds, Sotter finished 16-3 with a 1.55 ERA and 139 strikeouts. She appeared in every game for Wilmington, starting 19 contests.
Sotter, an all-star, pushed the Lady Greyhounds to the District 10 Class AA quarterfinals, but six errors doomed the team in a 9-5 loss to Northwestern.
She will be attending Edinboro for softball in the fall.
An outside hitter for Wilmington volleyball, Sotter also excelled with first-team honors. For the season, she recorded 21 aces, 139 serving points, 141 kills, 21 blocks and 156 digs.
The Lady Greyhounds finished 7-5 in Region 3 and 10-6 overall.
Stelter made history on the diving board.
The Mohawk junior became the first athlete at the school to claim a WPIAL and PIAA championship in the sport.
Performing a difficult reverse one and a half twist, Stelter bested the field by the slimmest of margins in the district meet — 2.2 points.
The championship allowed Stelter a berth in the PIAA Championship, her third appearance in a row at the event.
She wouldn’t let that go to waste, taking home Class AA gold with a score of 460.70 to edge Holy Redeemer’s Kelsey Williams by 7.35 points.
Later in the season, Stelter was named an All-American from the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association, an honor given to just 100 high school divers around the nation.
Stelter went undefeated in regular-season dual meet six-dive competitions with a high score of 278.55.
She also is swift on dry land, providing winning performances on the track in the 400 relay, pole vault, triple jump and long jump.
Stelter also was a member of the Lady Warriors volleyball team.
