Athlete of the Week

West Point's Miriam Oldacre.

The Cullman Times

West Point's varsity girls are off to a blazing 7-0 start in November.

And Miriam Oldacre is a big reason why.

Though the Lady Warriors are extremely balanced offensively, Oldacre crafted four consistent performances this past week in wins over Phil Campbell (80-66), West Morgan (81-60), Jasper (68-24) and Good Hope (65-37).

The impressive scorer collected 16 points, 23 points, 16 points and 12 points in those four matchups — spearheading what has been a multi-faceted attack by the Maroon and White all season long.

And with those gaudy numbers comes The Times' Athlete of the Week award.

Olivia Ball (45 points), Micah Oldacre (41), Mackenzie Carter (40) and Brooke Brownfield (38) also put forth nice efforts for coach Richie Penn's squad during the aforementioned four-game stretch.

Athlete of the Week, which is sponsored by Mitch Smith Chevrolet, is currently open to basketball athletes. 

Nominations are encouraged and can be emailed to with the athlete's name, school and stats.
