Megan Zander — Girls Basketball
Megan had a phenomenal month of January for girls basketball. Her numbers speak for themselves. Over the seven games we had in January, Megan averaged a double-double, with 19.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. She also added 2.1 steals and knocked down nearly three threes per game. Although Megan’s stats are quite impressive, her contributions to our team are so much more than just the numbers she produces night in and night out. Megan is a consistent force for us. We always know what we will get from her. Even on nights where Megan’s shot may not fall as often as we’d like, we know we can always count on her to make her defensive presence know. She has worked incredibly hard to better herself on that end of the floor. She gets herself into the right position for the sake of our team’s defensive strategies. Megan makes sure she is always the last line of defense between the ball and the hoop. She is always steady, no matter what the situation. She never gets too high or too low in the moment. Megan may not be the loudest vocal player on the floor, but her impact on our team is undeniable. She is the true definition of someone who leads by example.
