After just a few weeks off between fall and winter seasons, we’re again with our weekly Athlete of the Week offered by Faculty Hype. This week’s winner is Ellie Savitscus. Ellie is the senior captain on the women basketball group and nearly single-handedly overcame a 12 level Harborwomen 4th quarter deficit on Friday night time in opposition to Marshfield. The third 12 months varsity participant stepped up in Hingham’s 45-43 loss with 18 factors, 5 assists and three steals.
Second 12 months head coach Roland Millien is impressed with Ellie’s efficiency through the first week of the season.
“Ellie led a 12 level comeback within the ultimate 5 minutes that simply fell brief,” stated Millien. “Her spirited play and management left the group feeling optimistic about the remainder of the season. She hit well timed shot after well timed shot and this week proved why she was chosen as an all star final 12 months.”
Fellow senior captain Sarah Holler added that Ellie stepped up when the group wanted her probably the most.
“I am pleased with Ellie and her efficiency this week,” Holler stated. “After our loss in opposition to Quincy, we got here collectively as a group and performed the best way I knew we might with Ellie main us on offense. She had some nice drives and made the free throws after we wanted them.”
Hingham’s subsequent 4 video games are on the highway and do not return dwelling till after the brand new 12 months when you’ll be able to catch Ellie and the remainder of the Harborwomen on Friday, January sixth at 6pm vs Whitman-Hanson.
