SHERMAN – Katy Williams of Austin College, senior forward from Sulphur Springs, has been named SCAC Basketball Player-of-the-Week for games played Monday, Feb. 8 through Sunday, Feb. 14.
On the year Williams is averaging 16.2 points per game on 54.9 percent shooting to go along with 13.3 rebounds. Williams’ 13.3 rebounds currently leads the SCAC and is eighth in the NCAA. She has advanced past Krista Prato Matthews of Trinity with 1,009 she acquired from 2005-2009.
“Katy (Williams) is one of my former players here at North Hopkins,” said North Hopkins Lady Panther head basketball coach and athletic director Tim Menke. “She was a two time all-state player here at North Hopkins. She has played at Austin College in Sherman the past four years and has recently become the all-time rebounder for the SCAC. She was newcomer of the year in the SCAC her freshmen year and has been all conference each year.”
Sulphur Springs head varsity softball coach David Carrillo is not worried about being labeled a poor host.
Carrillo was kidded Friday morning about inviting 21 teams to the Sulphur Springs spring softball tournament then winning the first two games by lopsided margins.
The Lady Cats flattened Frisco Liberty 11-0 in the early game Thursday and mauled Mabank, 11-1 in the second game of the day.
“We’re hitting the ball so well, I am kind of surprised. It was an offensive explosion,” Carrillo said with a wide smile. “We are taking up where we left off last year. It’s a tribute to the girls. I am kind of amazed by them.”
