This weeks male athlete of the week is Tigers guard, Tanner Miller. Miller has started to settle in and gain confidence on the hardwood. This past week Tanner has helped the Tigers put up wins against East Fairmont(#6), Bridgeport HS, and last night against RCB. Tanner had a solid game against the Bees Friday night. Followed it up the next night with a game high 26 points and then last night another 20 point performance. The Tigers are getting contributions from a number of players including play coming off the bench. Tigers look to win a pivotal sectional matchup game tonight against Lewis County at home. Congrats to Tanner and the Elkins Tigers!
FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
This week we honor Gracelin Corley as the female athlete of the week. Gracelin was clutch in the Lady Tigers overtime win against Southern H.S. out of Maryland. Gracelin scored 6 out of her game-high 19 points in the extra stanza. Elkins outscored the Lady Rams 7-2 in overtime. The Tigers got things going in the 4th quarter to rally and tie the game forcing the OT and from there it was all Elkins. We congratulate Gracelin and the Lady Tigers for their hustle, fight, and never give up attitude. Go Tigers!
