ATHLETES OF THE WEEK: Perkiomen Valley’s Steve Leonard and Methacton’s Kelsey Watson

Steve Leonard
Perkiomen Valley
Boys Basketball
What he has done
The 6-foot-5 senior wing scored a game-high 16 points in Tuesday’s breakthrough 43-41 victory over Spring-Ford, and also contributed a combined 27 points in wins over Wissahickon and Souderton as the Vikings extended their winning streak to 11 games.
What he says
“The key for me is to just do whatever I can to make my team better. Knocking down 3-pointers has always been my specialty, but anything else I can do, like driving to the basket, making the extra pass, and basically trying to make my team better in practice, is my goal.”

Kelsey Watson
Girls Basketball
What she has done
The 5-foot-10 senior forward continued her consistent campaign with team-highs of 16 and 21 points, respectively, in wins over Souderton and Cheltenham. Watson, a Kutztown University recruit, ranks second in the PAC-10 with a 16.1 scoring average
What she says
“I try to provide intensity and rebounding and scoring. We’ve been playing as a team and we’re playing real well together down the stretch.”
