For her efforts on the basketball court this week, Alcovy senior Waneisha Morris has been named the Alcovy Athlete of the Week.

Morris scored a game-high 26 points Friday night against rival Rockdale County, scoring 11 points in the fourth quarter while trying to help the Lady Tigers make a comeback bid in region play.

Morris scored Alcovy's first basket, a 3-pointer less than a minute into the game, giving the Lady Tigers' their lone lead of the contest.

The senior captain has played four years of varsity basketball, joining the Lady Tigers' program during her freshman season.

Alcovy coach David Baker said that Morris has continued to grow as a player with the Lady Tigers this season.

“We had a real heart-to-heart talk with her … about the duties of a point guard," Baker said. "I just let her know that she needed to give a little more, and if she just did it, everyone else would conform.”

Morris and the Lady Tigers return to action Tuesday on the road at Druid Hills.
