Shelby Valley's Alyssa Elswick earns player of the week honors

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) Shelby Valley's Alyssa Elswick had quite the week for the Lady Cats last week.

The freshman averaged 22.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game last week to help Shelby Valley to a 59th District runner-up and a spot in the region tournament.

Head Coach Lonnie Rowe says that the freshman has put in the time to get to where she is now.

"It's just a testament to her hard work," Rowe said. "She puts in a lot of time during the summer - extra time you have to put in in order to be special. With her, her ceiling's extremely high and we're looking forward to the future with her."
