SACKVILLE, N.B. - Amherst's Marlon Smith has won Mount Allison Mounties athlete of the week honours for her reliable and steady play against the Maine (Machias) Clippers, UNBSJ Seawolves and the Holland College Hurricanes.
Smith scored in double figures for all three games over the past week of women's basketball action.
Against Maine she dropped in 17 points in the Mounties' 75-58 victory, shooting five-for-five from the three-point line. In league play at Saint John, Smith totalled 16 points, four rebounds, four steals and blocked one shot in her team's 67-27 win over the Seawolves.
And on Sunday, against the visiting Hurricanes, she contributed 10 points, six rebounds, and a steal. Also along with her teammates, Smith worked the press and helped to cause 38 Hurricane turnovers in the game.
Smith is an Amherst Regional High School alumnus, where she played for the school basketball squad coached by Fred Gould.
She was also a multi-sport MVP and captain in softball and soccer as well, and was the school's athlete of the year from 2006-08.
In her first year at Mount Allison last season, Marlon was selected as the basketball Mounties' top rookie, and as the Atlantic Colleges Athletic Association's rookie of the year.
