The Winter season is officially under way, and what better way to give out our Athlete of the Week to a fantastic performance in the clutch. This week's athlete is England Bennett of the Pennfield Panthers, who led the Lady Panthers Tuesday night with 14 points and seven rebounds in a 52-46 victory over Comstock. Bennett stepped up and score nine of her points in the fourth quarter, as she helped give the Panthers some cushion in the closing minutes.

With the new season underway, don't forget to nominate your student-athlete as the Meijer Athlete of the Week. All athletes will receive a plaque, courtesy of Recognition, Inc. Click here for your nomination.
