Two solid performances in road games have helped Mineral Area point guard Hayley Winter earn her second Region 16 women’s basketball Player of the Week award this season.
The durable sophomore from Perth, Western Australia, shot 46 percent from the field last week in close contests at Jefferson and Crowder.
She totaled 19 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals on Wednesday as MAC rallied past the Vikings in the final minute for an 80-77 victory and regular-season sweep.
The Lady Cardinals fell to Crowder 81-76 on Saturday, but Winter compiled 17 points, seven assists and four rebounds while making 6-of-11 shots in defeat.
Winter currently ranks fourth nationally in assists among NJCAA Division I players. Her freshman season included one national Player of the Week honor.
Mineral Area returns to action at home Saturday against Three Rivers.
