Worth County’s Anfernee McLemore and Monroe’s Key Key Price are The Herald’s Players of the Week.

MALE ATHLETE OF WEEK

Anfernee McLemore

Sophomore

Worth County High School

McLemore earned his second athlete of the week honors this season. He helped the Rams to three key wins, including a triple-double in a 60-59 win over Americus-Sumter last Friday. He scored 18 points and 10 rebounds in a victory over Fitzgerald last Saturday, then keyed a 80-77 victory over Albany on Tuesday with an 17-point, 11-rebound effort.


FEMALE ATHLETE OF WEEK

Key Key Price

Junior

Monroe High School

Price’s play helped Monroe to its ninth straight win and the regular-season Region 1-AAAA title last week. She scored 36 points in a 69-49 victory over Dougherty last Friday, then she finished with 24 to help the Lady Tornadoes defeat Crisp County 56-54 last Saturday night.


QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“At first they were being physical and I was kind of taking it; then I sucked it up and said I wasn’t going to take it anymore and I started playing like the old Anfernee. I think that fueled the whole team. Once we got the big plays, the momentum carried us the rest of the way.”

— Worth County sophomore Anfernee McLemore after his team scored an 80-77 victory over Albany High on Tuesday to remain atop the Region 1-AAAA standings.
