    Kristen Young Named Week 14 Athlete of the Week

    Coming in with eight active players last Saturday against the undefeated College Wesmen, the Red River Rebels women’s basketball team were understandably underdogs in a bout between the top two teams in the conference.

    Thanks to a pivotal 18 points from forward Kristen Young though, the Rebels were able to steal a low-scoring affair, 56-50, and hand the College Wesmen their first loss of the 2011-12 season.

    While the College Wesmen were knocking down outside shots all night, the second-year, 6’1” Young did her work from the post. The former Junior Wesmen player led her team in scoring and did it with a balanced ten in the first half, and eight in the second.

    With the win, the Rebels inched closer to the College Wesmen, finishing the week at 8-3 while the Wesmen sit atop the conference still at 9-1. The two teams will not meet again in the regular season, but could be fighting for a title come the Final 4’s on March 2nd and 3rd.

    Young is studying business administration and graduated from Glenlawn Collegiate.
