Main Line Media News: Winning Radnor's first-ever Central League title by defeating Conestoga last winter surely must be one of the most memorable experiences of your Red Raider basketball career. Can you share with us your most vivid memory of that experience?
Myonie Williamson: The most vivid memory that I had of that game was when Kyla Crombie was shooting her foul shots in the final seconds of the game, and she looked at me and smiled. I knew exactly what she was thinking - "We did it!' - then the buzzer went off. We won, and it felt like all we worked for had finally paid off. Main Line Media News: What, to you, is the biggest key to being a good rebounder?
Myonie Williamson: I believe that the biggest key to rebounding is boxing out and communicating with my teammates to do the same. Main Line Media News: Describe how you see your leadership role on the Radnor girls' basketball squad.
Myonie Williamson: I see my leadership role as motivating my teammates as well as myself to make sure our heads are in the right mindset in order to do what we do best - play as a team. Main Line Media News: What play stands out most in your memory from this season? Can you describe how the play unfolded and your role in it?
Myonie Williamson: A play that I most remember is when we were going through a set we had spent a lot of time working on at practice. I told Kristen Hamill to roll to the basket next time around and I said "now,' and passed her the ball for an easy layup. Main Line Media News: What do you think is the strongest part of your game? Is there a player whose game you try to pattern yours after?
Myonie Williamson: I think that the strongest part of my game is my three-point shot. There's not a player whose game I try to pattern. I actually don't watch much basketball, I just like to go out and play. Main Line Media News: What aspect of your game are you working the most on currently?
Myonie Williamson: Driving to the basket when I see an open opportunity instead of just settling for jump shots. Main Line Media News: You wear No. 32 for Radnor - does this number carry any special significance for you?
Myonie Williamson: Yes, I was always No. 23 growing up because I liked Michael Jordan, but everybody always wanted that number so one year I decided to switch and do something new. My dad was always No. 3 when he played and my sister's favorite number was 2, so I started being 32, which is also Blake Griffin's number and I think he is hot, so I like the number even more now. Main Line Media News: You plan to play basketball for Dickinson College - what do you think you'd like to major in?
