Okaw Valley's Robinson wins Athlete of the Week

Timberwolves standout already holds school record for career points

BETHANY (WCIA) -- Okaw Valley girls' basketball player Paige Robinson is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. The Timberwolves senior has led the team to a 23-5 record, scoring an average of 23.7 points per game. Robinson has already broke the program all-time scoring record with more than 1,850 points. The Drury University signee has her sights set on the 2,000-point mark but more importantly, helping her team to a successful postseason run.

"It's pretty awesome out of all the athletes in the area for a girl to win it," Robinson said. "Since I was a little kid, I kind of switched from softball to basketball and it's still kind of settling in with me. Definitely a regional championship, to get the first one in school history for girls basketball and hopefully keep rolling from there."

Robinson is now eligible to win a $500 scholarship that we'll award to one weekly winner in June. To nominate someone for Athlete of the Week, visit: http://www.illinoishomepage.net/athlete-of-the-week
