Senior Kimora Carruthers is an Athlete of the Week for Springfield High School. Kimora helped the girls basketball team defeat Swanton on Senior Night by scoring 12 points and draining a big 3-point shot. She bounced back from this game to score 10 more points against Anthony Wayne. Coach Clifton Hodges says of Kimora, “She is one of the leaders on our young team. She leads the girls in breaks, is always positive on the bench, and she is more of like a big sister to the younger girls.” Coach Hodges recalled a moment during a varsity game when Kimora encouraged one of the freshman players who was having an off-night. Coach Hodges said, “She is a natural leader and we are so excited to have her back this season.” Congratulations, Kimora!
The Athlete of the Week awards are sponsored by the Springfield Athletic Boosters.
