Meadow Tisdale stepped up big over the weekend when her team needed her the most.
A standout freshman forward for the Bowling Green girls’ basketball team, Tisdale registered two big outings to help the Lady Purples capture the Region 4 Tournament championship and has been named the Med Center Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Female Athlete of the Week.
Tisdale recorded a double-double of 17 points and 20 rebounds in a 47-29 semifinal win over Russell County and followed that performance up with 17 points and eight rebounds in a 58-48 championship victory against Barren County.
Tisdale and the Lady Purples (28-6 overall) return to action Thursday vs. Region 16 champion Russell in the opening round of the Girls’ Sweet Sixteen at Rupp Arena in Lexington. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. CT.
