Phillip Pepple, a Sophomore from Shorecrest High School, was nominated by a community member and selected by WIAA staff as one of the Athletes of the Week for achievements in Basketball.
Pepple connected on 10 of 15 shots in the championship game, scoring 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to make the all-tournament second team. The Scots placed second, losing to Clarkston.
In recognition of their accomplishment, each Athlete of the Week winner receives a congratulatory letter from WIAA Executive Director, Mike Colbrese, a commemorative WIAA State Athlete of the Week t-shirt, and a certificate. Winners are also posted to the WIAA website.
