Linsly's Brunner Named Athlete of the Week

Posted: Updated:

Linsly sophomore guard Morgan Brunner has been named the WTRF/Robinson Auto Group Athlete of the Week.

Brunner scored a game-high 21 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in the Cadets 47-41 double-overtime victory over the two-time, defending OVAC champions Fort Frye last Saturday afternoon in the 3A title game at Ohio University Eastern.

Brunner buried a big three-pointer, her only three of the game, in the second overtime to seal the victory. She scored seven of Linsly's 11 points in double overtime. Brunner was also 6-7 from the free throw line, helping her Cadets (19-1), coached by Erica Hall, to a school-record 19th consecutive win.
