Logan High School girls’ basketball player Monica Mitchell has been named this week as the Logan Banner Athlete of the Week.
Mitchell, a 6-foot-2 all-state senior center, has played well all season.
Mitchell recorded her usual double-double with 22 points and 13 rebounds in Monday afternoon’s 63-52 loss to St. Albans in the Little General Shootout in the Big House at the Charleston Civic Center.
In last Saturday night’s Senior Night loss to Winfield at Logan’s Willie Akers Arena, Mitchell tallied a 21 points in a 48-45 loss to the Lady Generals.
Logan played Chapmanville on Tuesday in another Shootout in the Big House game at the Civic Center. Mitchell had 18 points and nine rebounds and was 10-for-11 from the foul line in a 49-44 loss to Chapmanville.
Logan is scheduled to return to action with Saturday night’s game at Belfry (Ky.). Logan then travels to Winfield on Feb. 15 and hosts Tolsia on Feb. 16 in the home finale.
LHS is then set to play in the Class AAA sectional tournament at Spring Valley High School.
