Lauren Ballance, a junior at Edmonson County High School and a player for the Edmonson County Lady Cats was named Heritage Park Preschool and Nursery 3rd Region Player of the Week on Dec. 27. The paragraph that follows is what was posted on Homer’s Radio Network website:
Lauren averaged 16 points per game and more importantly helped Edmonson win five straight games in the past week. Which also helped Edmonson make a HUGE leap on our Top 10 Teams list. After last year’s success, this team knows how to win, and it’s beginning to show on the court.
Lady Cats coach, Bart Weaver said, “Lauren gives 110 percent all the time. She uses her body well in defense and scoring. She hits free throws and gets rebounds. We are very proud of her.”
Lauren scored 17 points and had 12 rebounds on Jan. 4 in the win over Whitesville Trinity.
Lauren is the daughter of Bill and Tyra Ballance.
