Cavalier basketball Player of the Week for Jan.
Kathleen Kelly has been selected as this week’s Gary Edwards Country Financial Player of the Week. The award alternates each week between the boys and girls basketball teams at Carlinville High School.
Kelly, a 6-foot sophomore forward, has averaged 10 points and 7 rebounds per game over the Lady Cavaliers’ last three games.
“Kathleen has continued to get better for us,” Carlinville head coach Darrin DeNeve said. “She has been one of our more consistent performers, and she is always one of the first few girls to get to practice and start working. She strives to improve in practice and on her own time. She has had a very solid start to her career, and we are looking forward to continued improvement the next two and a half years.”
