Aisha Sheppard, St. John’s topple Paul VI to win an elusive WCAC title

Aisha Sheppard, St. John’s topple Paul VI to win an elusive WCAC title

Her teammates began bouncing in celebration at midcourt. Her coaches, already leaking tears of joy, hugged by the bench. And there was Sheppard, somehow alone in a packed Bender Arena, smiling at the ceiling and clenching her fists while laying on the floor. 

"There was just too many emotions to even stand up," said Sheppard, moments after St. John's beat Paul VI, 58-52, to win the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference girls' championship on Monday night in Northwest Washington.
