Male Athlete of the Week
Williamson Warrior Basketball
Kolby Allen netted his 1,000th point in a season final victory over the Northern Potter basketball team, and his play helped elevate his team when they were trailing in the third quarter.
Allen used his ability to get to the rim and draw fouls to score an incredible 15 points in the frame, and about halfway through that stretch become just the seventh player in the history of Williamson basketball to eclipse the impressive mark.
The run Allen put together helped spark his teams offense as they tore through the Northern Potter defense to the tune of 51 points in the second half.
Allen’s impressive season of scoring 21.2 points per game (third best in the NTL) and career as a Warrior has earned him the spot of this week’s Male Athlete of the Week.
Female Athlete of the Week
Np-Mansfield Lady Tigers Basketball
On Tuesday, Feb. 11, JoAnne McNamara netted her 1,000th point in an important win against the Canton Lady Warriors that sends the North Penn-Mansfield Lady Tigers to the NTL showdown.
McNamara scored 25 points in the effort and was key during a third quarter run that buried the Lady Warriors into a hole they would never be able to climb out of.
McNmara scored eight points during that run, and also got her 1000th on a free throw midway through the quarter.
McNamara was able to drive to the basket at will throughout the contest that helped open things up on the floor for her teammates.
McNamara took over for her team in a big game and capped off her 1,000-point career at Mansfield landing her as this week’s Female Athlete of the Week.
