Boys Varsity Basketball, Girls Varsity Basketball · Kankakee Valley Athletes of the week!

KV athletes of the week for Nov. 26th – Dec. 1st

The male athlete of the week for the week of Nov. 26th is Eli Carden

Eli got his first two Varsity starts ever in his basketball career and responded very well. On Friday night, he only scored 3 points in our 48-41 win against Rensselaer but he played excellent defense and really made some important plays on offense by setting up shots for his teammates. On Saturday night, Eli really stepped onto the scene by leading us in scoring with 21 points in a loss at Kouts. Included in that 21 points was 4 three’s and 7 of 10 from the FT line. His defense was once again very good and he played an exceptional all around game. Congratulations Eli!
The female athlete of the week is SeniorSarah Martin! Sarah has been a strong leader for the Kougars and last week was no different. Sarah averaged 18 points per game in two blow out wins over Lowell and Michigan City. The lady Kougars are now 9-1 on the season. Congratulations Sarah and the Lady Kougar basketball team.
