West Metro POW: LaShawn Jones, Putnam City
Really, the West Metro Player of the Week honor goes to the entire Putnam City girls basketball team for its big win over No. 2 Edmond North last week. But it was 6-foot-3 junior LaShawn Jones who came alive with 19 points to spark the victory.
It was her first big performance of the season, and she showed that she can be a force inside. With Jones’ post presence and consistent guard play, PC has the potential to do some big things this year.
Joe Summers, PC North: His 29-point performance in the win over Choctaw was good enough for POW honors, but the PC girls’ win was too much to ignore. Summers is a talented sophomore who will be at the forefront of PC North athletics for the next few years.
Jacob Strassle, Mustang: Averaged 16.5 points in two games last week. The 6-foot-3 junior scored 17 points to lead the Broncos past Westmoore, snapping a five-game losing skid on Friday.
Laila Suleiman, Yukon: Scored 22 points as the Millerettes coasted to a win over PC West.
Josiah Campbell, PC West: Everyone knows about Tyler Neal and Amric Fields, but Campbell, a 6-foot-3 senior who moved in from Del City, has been reliable for the Patriots. He can score, rebound and defend. He finished with 10 points in the win over Yukon last Tuesday.
Brian Brown, PC: On a team loaded with scorers, Brown stepped up with 18 points to lead the Pirates to a win over Edmond North.
Wrestler of the week
Michael Pereya, Yukon: Making his high school debut, Pereya recorded a pin at 2:11 as the Millers topped PC West 51-21, bouncing back from last week’s loss to Edmond North that ended their 19-match regular season dual win streak.
