Edison senior forward Sheila Sherrill, the team’s leading scorer for much of the season and the only Eagle to be selected to one of the all-Northern Region teams, is still waiting for her first scholarship offer.

The second-team all-region pick has visited Drexel, a school of interest to her for two reasons. One, she said that Dragons coaches tell her that her playing style is similar to that of a senior there, forward Taylor Wootton, the team’s second-leading scorer. And two, her sister Ruth, a 2012 Edison graduate, is a freshman forward at Hofstra, which competes in the Colonial Athletic Association with Drexel.

The 6-foot Sherrill is averaging 11 points per game for the surprising Eagles, who start three freshmen but were able to win the region title. They will host Northwest Region runner-up Colonial Forge, from Stafford County, at 5 p.m. Friday at Robinson in a Virginia AAA quarterfinal.

Sherrill said that Fairleigh Dickinson, Central Florida and Robert Morris  also have shown interest in her.

“I just really want to be close to my sister,” Sherrill said. “[Hofstra] was looking at me earlier in the season, but I didn’t want to go there and be too close to my sister.”

“She’s going to be a gem to somebody,” Edison Coach Dianne Lewis said. “Several schools have expressed an interest that are still looking for post players and we always get schools [at the state tournament] that come and watch the games. So I expect more to blossom out of that.”

Freshmen Pandora Wilson (Holy Cross) and Carrie Alexander (McNamara) play for Drexel (19-7. 12-3), as does Abby Redick, the sister of J.J. Redick, the former Duke star and current Milwaukee Buck.

Alexander has appeared in 11 games. Wilson has not yet made her debut; she did not play in the first three games and has been out since with an injury.

Drexel (19-7, 12-3) is tied with James Madison for second in the CAA, behind No. 18 Delaware (24-3, 15-0).
