Beloit Senior Jessica Meier has been named the Telephone and Cable Athlete of the Week.

Meier had a big week in helping lead the Beloit Lady Trojans to an outright NCAA league basketball title.  Last Tuesday, February 18 in Beloit's 57-55 home win over Sacred Heart, Meier scored a career high 26 points and made the game-winning layup at the buzzer.  She added seven assists, four steals and two blocks and shot 63% from the floor in the win over the Lady Knights.  She followed that up with 23 points, seven assists and three steals in Beloit's 54-47 win at Minneapolis on Friday, February 21.  That win clinched the outright league championship.  Meier scored in double figures again in the Lady Trojans' 56-54 win this Tuesday night at Smith Center.  She put up 11 points and added another three assists in the victory.  For the season, Meier is second on the team in scoring at 13.2 ppg, scoring in double figures 15 times this season, and has made a team high 33 three-pointers.  She also leads the team with 5.2 apg and 3.1 spg, while adding 3.5 rpg.

We will announce the winners each week. Remember, you can nominate an athlete from any school sport.
