Athlete of the Week • Nov. 25-Dec. 1 • Joey Batt, New Ulm H.S.
Sr. G, New Ulm H.S.
Daughter of Brian and Laura Batt
• Batt, who averaged 25.7 points per game as a junior, is off to a fast start as the Eagles went 1-1 during last week’s competition.
• She scored 26. 5 ppg last week on 50 percent shooting. She averaged 5.5 steals, 4.5 assists and three rebounds per game.
Batt, who will play college basketball at Minnesota State University, Mankato next year, is also off to a good start defensively. Offensively, she’s just getting started.
“A lot of focus gets paid to offense and points, and I think that while the numbers aren’t bad, Joey has not hit her stride offensively yet,” Eagles coach Brian Batt said. “But defensively she is playing extremely well.”
