ALC’s Female Athlete of the Week is junior Ariel Nickell. This comes as no surprise since the uber-talented forward was also the KIAC Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week.
During the week, Nickell averaged 28 points and 11.5 rebounds. She also put up a career-high 38 points, along with 15 rebounds, against Martin Methodist. In the Lady Eagles’ last game versus Milligan College, Nickell once again led the way with 26 points and 14 rebounds.
With Nickell as a solid team leader, ALC currently stands at 2-2 on the season. The team will look to get back above .500 on Tuesday night as they seek to avenge an early season loss versus Union College at 6 PM.
