This week, the South Tama County Middle School Student-Athlete Spotlight is on Saylor Upah. Saylor is an 8th grader at STC. She is a center for the Trojan basketball team.
With the start of the 2013-14 basketball season here, Saylor has developed into a team leader and a hard worker during the first 2 weeks of practice. The lady Trojans will look for Saylor to develop a strong presence under the hoop.
