Katrina Cowder is the Female Athlete of the Week for the week ending on January 14th. Katrina has been essential to the Lady Warrior Basketball team’s recent success. On January 13th, in the girls’ win over the Damsels, Cowder had 13 of the Warrior’s 43 points. 

Coach Koleno is very happy with how Katrina has played, stating, “I can’t talk about how valuable her rim protection is for us defensively. Everyone else is able to be aggressive and create turnovers because we know we won’t give up a layup at the other end as a result. She is the best shot blocker in the area. Offensively, she can score in a lot of ways. Post-up, Mid-range, and three point shooting. You name it. She will continue to improve. She is never quite satisfied with where she is at. That may be her best attribute.” Katrina is very vigorous on rebounds and blocks for the Lady Warriors. Katrina averages eight points per game for her varsity career and three and a half rebounds.
