For the third-consecutive week a West Georgia Tech player has been named Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (Region 17) Player of the Week in voting by league coaches.
Jasmine Williams, a sophomore from Paulding County, was given this week’s honor after averaging 16.5 points, five assists and three steals in a pair of WGTC victories last week.
Williams scored a career-high 26 points in last Friday’s victory over Chattahoochee Tech. She is third on the team in scoring this season, with 9.8 points per game.
Williams’ efforts helped WGTC defeat Truett McConnell JV (85-29) and Chattahoochee Tech (77-55) last week to improve to 7-3 on the season heading into Monday night’s home game against Gadsden State (AL.).
“Jasmine has played very well for us in her sophomore season,” said WGTC head coach Kenny Edwards. “Her consistent play and leadership has been a tremendous asset to our young team. She played a very big game against Chattahoochee Tech, stepping up when numerous key players were on the bench due to foul trouble. She played the best game of her West Georgia Tech career.”
West Georgia Tech has won five-straight games.
Kadriana Howard (Sycamore, GA.) and Kelsey Walthall (Atlanta, GA.) both won the award in previous weeks this season.
