Athletes of the Week for 1-30

Another round of girls’ athletes of the week for you this morning as we wind down the season. Both are from the hardwood.

MOUNT SI – Senior Katy Lindor has come on strong the past couple of weeks, and her efforts earn her the nod this week. Lindor scored 16 points and added eight rebounds to help the Wildcats outlast Sammamish in overtime last Friday, and this was on top of a 17 point, eight board effort in the loss last Wednesday to MI. Lindor has scored in double digits in three out of the past four games, helping her become the top scorer on the team at 9.5 points per game, according to MaxPreps. Lindor’s efforts will be critical down the stretch if Mount Si wants to extend their season beyond this weekend. They have two games to wrap up the regular season, then the playoffs open with a loser-out game Saturday.

CEDARCREST – With our rules being what they are (that no one gets two AotW’s in a single season) it gets a little harder to pick the athlete of the week for girls’ hoops from Cedarcrest the later the season gets because we have already recognized the team’s best players. So we have to look for great individual efforts from some unsung heroines, and we have one for you this week. Kathryn Smith, whose efforts during the season have gone unnoticed with the emergence of the big names on the team, such as Susan Kenney and Kailyn Campbell, made her mark last Friday night, scoring 10 points for the Red Wolves in their blowout of Granite Falls. Efforts of players such as Smith can prove critical down the stretch for a CHS team which has held up this season and looks to make a deep run in postseason. The Red Wolves meet King’s tomorrow then wrap up the season later this week against Lakewood.
