Whether it’s the athletes, coaches, front office staff, athletic directors or training staff, it takes a small community to build a winning atmosphere, no matter the level of the sport.
Like its written counterpart, the Away From the Game podcast profiles movers and shakers in the Wyoming Valley athletics world. This week we feature former Holy Redeemer basketball standout Alexis Lewis.
As the No. 5 seed in this past weekend’s Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Championship, Lewis and her Iona teammates blew out No. 4 Siena in the quarterfinals before falling to top-seeded Quinnipiac 64-59 in the semifinals on Sunday. Lewis was a dominant figure in both games, registering a double-double in each.
We caught up with the sophomore and discussed the jump from her freshman to sophomore year, her relationship with her brother, former Wyoming Valley West and Penn State football standout Geno Lewis, and the inspiration she draws from Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry.
