ATHLETE OF THE WEEK FOR PERIOD ENDING 2/3/19
Sarah Poirier #23 (Women's Basketball)
Jr. / 6-1 / Guard/Forward
Hometown: Ferrisburgh, Vt.
High School: Vergennes Union HS
Major: Biological Sciences
Inside the numbers: Poirier had her best offensive performance this year as she tied the team-high of 11 points in just 13 minutes of SVC’s only game last week. The junior went 3-5 from downtown and also added a pair of rebounds in her stint off the bench against Newbury on Saturday. Her points total was the most since she dropped 13 on November 26, 2017, and it was the 10th time of her career that she has cracked into double digits.
What Coach Gowan is saying: “I am so proud of Sarah for taking advantage of every minute she steps on the floor. She is a tough matchup defensively for our opponents because of her size and outside shooting ability. Sarah consistently comes into games and hits big shots. I am confident she will finish the season strong.”
