Ariel Nickell has been named this week’s Female Athlete of the Week.

The senior picked up right where she left off last season in the Lady Eagles’ first game of the 2013-14 schedule against Kentucky Christian University on November 5th. Versus the Lady Knights, the Tazewell, Tennessee native scored 39 points while going 11-12 in free throws, corralled 16 rebounds, and produced 4 steals.

Nickell averaged 26 points and 12.7 rebounds a season ago. Although the Lady Eagles have played just one game, the forward is on pace to repeat her play this season.

Catch Ariel Nickell in action on Saturday, November 9th, as Alice Lloyd takes on the visiting Milligan College Lady Buffaloes. Tip-off is at 2 PM.
