Hectic summer for Breanna Stewart

My features on UConn incoming freshmen Morgan Tuck and Moriah Jefferson have already been published and my piece on Breanna Stewart will be running in tomorrow's edition of the Register.

One interesting part about Stewart is her whirlwind schedule. She has recently been in Colorado Springs for the U-18 team trials and then spent several days in the Orlando area for the U-18 training camp. She flew home to the Syracuse area today but that won't be the last traveling she does this summer.

She said she will be heading to Connecticut for a brief visit on June 5 before returning home for a week. On June 13 she will be back to take some summer classes and will stay in Storrs except for June 22-23 when she goes back home for her high school graduation. She will then go back to UConn until July 6 before heading to Los Angeles a few days later for the ESPYs since she is up for the Gatorade national female athlete of the year award. She will go straight home after that and will remain there until Aug. 3 when she heads back to Colorado Springs for the final training camp for the U-18 team. After nine days at the U.S. Olympic Training Center Stewart and the rest of the U-18 squad will head to Puerto Rico for the FIBA Americas U-18 Championship for Women.

This is the last of the stories and blogs to come from my trip to the U-17 and U-18 training camp. I think it was time well spent as I was able to write profiles on the three incoming freshmen as well as catch up with players down there who are on UConn's recruiting radar.
