Wow, what a week for LINK nky Team of the Week presented by OrthoCincy!
Throughout the week, Scott and Newport Central Catholic’s girls basketball team were neck-and-neck until a late push from Scott got them over the edge. We had over 1,300 votes this week, so we want to thank you all for voting!
SCOTT EAGLES GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM
Scott earned Team of the Week honors after three straight victories at the Pam Browning Classic over the holidays with wins over Shelby County (80-41), Letcher County Central (52-43) and Carroll County (57-54).
It truly was a team effort for the Eagles in the three wins as 13 different players scored in the tournament led by Kayla Overman’s 13.6 points per game. Presley Grant added 11.3 points per game, Autumn Ponder at 8.3 points per game, Kaia Peterson with eight points per game and Ava Coleman and Kayla Peterson with five points per game.
Overman, Kayla Peterson, Coleman and Kaia Peterson were a force on the boards with 7.0, 6.6, 6.0 and 4.0 rebounds per game, respectively.
Scott currently sits at 8-6 and is considered one of the top five teams in the 10th Region.
Congratulations to our other nominees, as well: the Newport Central Catholic girls basketball team, Cooper boys basketball team and St. Henry boys basketball team.
Our weekly honor is open to all local sports teams at ALL levels, from youth to recreational to high school to college to pro and beyond.
