Behind one of the best performances of her career, Stephanie Husa led the Durham high girls basketball team to a victory over Weed in the division five section title game.

For Husa, it was a win she's dreamt about her entire life.

"The feeling was incredible and I was holding back tears at the end. It was crazy, I couldn't believe we finally did it but I was excited for the team," said Husa.

Stephanie Husa picked up the game of basketball when she was 6 years old. Fast forward 11 years and she's a star for the Trojans.

In the section title win, Husa poured in 27 points, accounting for more than half of her team's total points, as Durham dusted Weed, 53-35.

"I don't think it could've come a better time, it was perfect timing for that game. I honestly didn't know how many points I had until I got interviewed for player of the game and I was really surprised, it did not feel like that much," said Husa.

Husa not only scores on the court, she also chalks up high marks in the classroom with a 3.3 GPA.

"I have to focus on my grades more than basketball so I have to keep up on my homework and everything, as well as projects," said Husa.

That's what is important, and for Husa, remembering this magical senior year tops that list.

"Now looking back and knowing that I did it, there's no words to describe it," said Husa.
