Small world

It’s hard to forget a 6-foot-8 woman, so it was no surprise when Tom Guy spotted Storm coach Anne Donovan he immediately recognized her from her high school days in Ridgewood, N.J.
Guy was an official for some of Donovan’s games at Paramus Catholic. Her coach also helped Guy snag some college officiating gigs. But Guy is out of the biz now, working security at U.S. Airways Center the past seven years. He didn’t get a chance to reminisce much with Donovan, but I snuck in a question before leaving the arena.
Did you ever have to call a technical on her?
“Nope, she was a clean player,” Guy said.
Yeah, Donovan’s coach kept her pretty humble. Donovan even had to write thank-you cards when she won postseason awards.
“It’s nice seeing her again,” Guy said.
