ATHLETE OF THE WEEK FOR PERIOD ENDING 1/6/19
Liv Pressley #13 (Women's Basketball)
Fr. / 5-4 / Guard
Hometown: Richmondville, N.Y.
High School: Cobleskill-Richmondville HS
Major: Criminal Justice
Inside the numbers: Pressley led the Mountaineers in scoring during their only game last week as the rookie posted 10 points at MCLA on Wednesday. That was just the second time this season that she’s reached double figures in the points column. Pressley added two steals and a block in SVC’s return from the winter break.
What Coach Gowan is saying: “Liv did an excellent job for us against MCLA this week. She was rabid at the top of our zone defense and created excellent offensive opportunities with strong attacks off the dribble. I'm pleased with her development this season, and I think there will be a lot more where this came from!”
