JCC's athlete of the week program is sponsored by Under Armour and Victory Promotions.
Amy, a 2016 graduate of Mexico High School, Mexico, NY is majoring in Human Services at Jefferson. Holland’s accomplishments on the court this past week include helping lead the Lady Cannoneers to a 3-1 overall record and a 2-1 Mid-State Athletic Conference record. She averaged 13.25 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals per game during the four game stretch.
Herby, a 2014 graduate of Erasmus Hall, Brooklyn, NY, is majoring in Physical Education at Jefferson. Plaisimond’s accomplishments on the court this past week include working extremely hard to improve his game and it is showing up in the stats, as he has been one of the leading scorers and usually gets the task of defending one of the other team’s leading scorers. Herby is not afraid of any challenge that we put him up to and he continues to get better each game. We are looking for continued success and leadership from him as we continue to improve each game as a team.
