For the Petersburg girls basketball team, getting Alisha Webster the ball has been an occurring theme.
"Alisha has basically been the face of our program for the past two seasons," said head basketball coach Avery Anderson.
"I've played since I was old enough to dribble a ball," said Webster with a laugh.
"Primarily, she's a great three-point shooter," added Anderson. "She can drive to the basket, take people off the dribble. If we need a big shot, she's the girl we look for."
Webster led the Vikings in scoring for the second straight year this past season. She averaged 17 points and eight rebounds a game, earning All-Conference and All-State honors.
"She's a great basketball player, a great student, but getting to work with her for four years, she's even a better person, just absolutely all-around," said Anderson.
After taking so many college courses already, Webster will head to West Virginia in the fall as a sophomore. She'll study speech pathology and audiology.
"I just really like the school," said Webster. "I like the town. They have my major."
"Alisha is an excellent student," said teacher Joe Mohr. "She's more than just a good student, and I would say to you she's one of the most dedicated students, most conscientious students we have at the school. You can count on her to do excellent work all the time."
