Howard Named Player of the Week

Lady Mountaineer Ashley Jade Howard was recently named the KIAC women’s basketball “Player of the Week” for February 18- February 24.

Ashley Howard

Howard is a 5’7” freshman guard majoring in physical education. She comes from Saylersville, Ky where she attended Magoffin County High School. Berea College was an attractive school for her because of its location, its academic program and because Coach Harkleroad "never gave up" on getting her to sign up with the school. In response to winning the "Player of the Week" award, Howard said, "I feel as if it’s a great award, it makes you feel like you get noticed for your performance. As a first year college athlete it gives you confidence in your game, I think, and helps earn respect for yourself as a player."

Howard shot seven of 12 from the field in her 22 point outing against Virginia Intermont. She also scored 20 points in the KIAC regular season ending game in a loss at IU Southeast. The Lady Mountaineers will participate in the KIAC tournament this week when on Thursday, February 28, they take on St. Louis College of Pharmacy at Asbury College at 4:30.
