Hoops: Wellington F Stephon Gordon signs with California juco 

By Jeff Greer

Stephon Gordon had a standout senior season, and the Wellington High grad was rewarded with a scholarship.

Gordon, a 6-foot-3 forward, signed with West Hills Community College in Coalinga, Calif., on Tuesday. The graduated former Wellington star is the second Wellington Class of 2013 player to sign a hoops scholarship — classmate Alex Peavler recently signed with Oglethorpe College.

Gordon led Wellington in scoring (14 points per game) and rebounding (7.5 per game) over the 2012-13 season, helping the Wolverines reach the regional semifinals.
