Athletes of the Week
The women’s basketball team ran off to back-to-back victories last week behind the strong performance of Karrin Walker. As Walker kept the Hawks on a return visit to the NJCAA Region III tournament, she was honored this week by being named MVCC’s Athlete of the Week for the week ending February 3.
Walker played a key role in the Hawks’ 57-40 victory over Herkimer County Community College and then helped keep the training rolling as MVCC toppled Hudson Valley Community College, 76-48. Walker averaged 15 points and five rebounds in the two games.
The Hawks are 19-2 heading into this week with Walker starting in all the games. This sophomore forward from Richard R. Green High School in New York City, is averaging 6.7 points per game, 3.6 rebounds, along with 1 assist and 1 steal per game. She is majoring in education.
