Throughout this season, Somer Stover has found a way to shine on the court, win or lose.

That was the case again on Monday, when the East Fairmont sophomore scored 22 points and grabbed nine rebounds, putting together a star-quality performance for East Fairmont despite a 73-41 loss to North Marion.

Stover made five of her six shots from the field, and went 4-for-4 from the free throw line to be a one-man wrecking crew for a Bees team that was in real need of one.

With an impressive touch below the rim and an aggressive style when it comes to rebounding, Stover continues to show more promise with each passing game. A performance like last week’s made her an easy choice for voters to make her the new Player of the Week.
