An article by Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes about Shalee Lehning making the starting rotation of the Dream.
The 22-year-old had a bigger adjustment than basketball in coming to Atlanta. Lehning is small-town. From Sublette (population 1,200) in rural Kansas, she graduated with a class of 36. It took more than just Atlanta traffic to get used to.
“My mom was freaking out because there were six lanes of traffic. I said, ‘It’s not that bad once you get used to it,’ ” Lehning said.
After several trips to the Georgia Aquarium, Stone Mountain and many restaurants she is not looking back. She will return to Kansas State following the season to finish her last semester and graduate in December. She might even head to Europe to play during the offseason.
