This week's Athlete of the Week has been one of the leaders of the area's best girls basketball teams. The Marshall Redhawks are now 14-1 and have ran off 13 straight wins. In their two victories last week, the Redhawks received back-to-back double-doubles from junior forward Nikki Tucker, who scored 15 points and grabbed 11 rebounds against Pennfield and 17 points and 10 rebounds against Holt.

Nominate your student-athlete to become our next next Meijer Athlete of the Week! We announce them Wednesday mornings during the Richard Piet Show. All winners will receive a plaque for their accomplishment, courtesy of Recognition, Inc.
