Saniyah Shelton may only be a freshman, but she’s already excelling on big stages.
A standout guard for the Bowling Green girls’ basketball team, Shelton hit a game-winning layup right before the final horn last Friday to give the Lady Purples a 51-50 District 14 win over Warren East and has been named the Med Center Heath Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Female Athlete of the Week.
In addition to making the game-winner, Shelton scored 14 points to lead the way for Bowling Green. She shot 6-of-7 (86%) from the field and also added two rebounds.
Shelton, who is averaging 11.3 points per game, and the Lady Purples (22-5 overall) — winners of 13 straight — return to action Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. on the road at Logan County.
