Two from Virginia headed to West Virginia

Best buddies Linda Stepney and Crystal Leary, both from Lake Taylor High School in Norfolk, are going to be college teammates. The two juniors have made verbal commitments to West Virginia.

The 5-5 Stepney, who led Lake Taylor (30-1) to the Group AAA state championship last winter, impressed coaches at the Nike Invitational in April in Hampton, showing off the quick hands that have rated her among the top high school juniors in the nation. Stepney was an all-state selection and MVP of the state tournament and the 6-1 Leary was second-team all state.

West Virginia compiled a 29-6 mark last season, the best in school history with five of the losses coming to Top five teams. The Mountaineers, a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, lost to San Diego State in the second round.
