(Cadet) Kingston Lady Cougars Guard Madison Nelson is our Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week this week. The Cougars picked up big victories against Bismarck and Crystal City last week and Nelson averaged 28.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 6.5 steals in those two games. While the senior’s stat line was impressive enough to land her this accolade, most important for her was to pick of the victory.
Nelson is only 8 points away of breaking the MAAA conference record in scoring, but a postponement for her last game means Nelson will have to wait until this coming Monday against Arcadia Valley. She is currently in quarantine and tells us what she does with her time.
Nelson says a lot of hard work and improvement is the reason she’s in the position to break a scoring record.
She says her number one competitor is herself.
As Athlete of the Week, Nelson receives a T-Shirt, certificate, and a coupon for a free entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
