Maren McKenna earns CVMG Prep Basketball Player of the Week award in final week of season – Cache Valley Daily

NORTH LOGAN – Green Canyon senior guard Maren McKenna saved her best games for the last week of the season and earned her first Cache Valley Media Group Player of the Week award.

McKenna had a huge week for Green Canyon who went 2-0, including a victory over Sky View to earn a tie for second place in Region 11. McKenna had 30 points, 16 rebounds and 5 steals against Sky View. She followed it up with 21 points, 13 rebounds, 2 steals and 3 blocks in GC’s win over Bear River. For the week, McKenna averaged 25.5 points and 14.5 rebounds (both of which led Region 11 in boys and girls) along with 2.5 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.5 blocks.

Four other players made up a stacked class of player of the week candidates – Elise Livingston (Ridgeline girls), Hannah Radford (Sky View girls), Justin Anderson (Logan), and Tanner Davis (Sky View boys). Livingston posted her first 20-point games of the season by scoring 24 against Mountain Crest and then 22 against Logan, making 18 of her 21 field goals for the week. Radford put up back-to-back 25-point games posting the exact same 25 points against Green Canyon and Mountain Crest. Anderson scored 21 in Logan’s win over Bear River and then 14 in the loss to Ridgeline. Davis helped Sky View to finish out an undefeated region record with 15 points against Mountain Crest and 16 against Green Canyon.
