ATHLETES OF WEEK: Spring-Ford’s Zameer McDowell and Hill School’s Deanna Mayza

By Mercury Staff

Zameer McDowell
Boys Basketball
What he’s done
The 6-foot-5 senior scored a game-high 22 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in Saturday’s 67-47 victory over Pottsgrove that kept the Rams in the Liberty Division title hunt. McDowell also had 16 points and nine rebounds in Thursday’s 64-45 non-league victory over Daniel Boone.
What he says
“My role is to rebound, block shots, score a lot, and pass the ball when teams try to double-team me. I think we just have to play as a team, distribute the ball a lot and make a lot of shots.”

Hill School
Girls Basketball
What she’s done
The University of Hartford-bound guard scored a game-high 22 points as the Blues returned from the Christmas break to defeat St. Mary’s (Md.), 46-41. The 5-foot-7 Mayza leads the area in scoring at 22.3 points per game and is second in 3-pointers with 24.
What she says
“I think my shooting has been a big plus, and I’ve been able to drive a little better after my (early season ankle) injury. We’re very excited (heading into MAPL play). The league is very tough, but we’re excited to see where we fall, and it should be interesting.”
