Jaida Parker has been named The Daily Herald’s Tyrone athlete of the week for the week ending on Feb. 8.
Parker started the week with 13 points in a win over Philipsburg-Osceola before getting 19 points in a Mountain League-clinching win over Central and finishing the week with a 22-point performance in a big win over Juniata Valley.
“Jaida is a very talented offensive threat who can finish around the hoop and also shoot from the outside,” said Tyrone head coach Luke Rhoades. “The past several weeks she has played outstanding defense, which has created several scoring opportunities for her and our team. She is a team player who often makes the extra pass to get teammates involved in the offense.”
