Senior Mali Danavall was named an Indian of the Week by varsity girls basketball coach Brandy Corbett. “Mali was challenged last week to take greater ownership in her role as a senior leader,” Corbett said. “She had six points and nine rebounds on Friday and ten points and five rebounds on Saturday. She worked hard on both ends of the court and was just the spark we needed at the beginning of the third quarter when she scored eight consecutive points.”   

VARSITY BOY

Senior Xing Fan was selected as an Indian of the Week by varsity boys basketball coach Jim Van Hooser. “While Xing did not score a lot of points or get a lot of rebounds, he is a model of a great teammate,” Van Hooser said. “Xing works hard every day to be not only the best player he can be but also to make his teammates better.”
