Drury University forward Hailey Diestelkamp was named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Week in women’s basketball for her performance in two games last weekend.
The senior from Owensville, Missouri, led the number one ranked Lady Panthers to a pair of wins as she averaged 18 points and eight rebounds while shooting .461 from the field. Dielstelkamp had 22 points and nine boards in Drury’s 57-54 win over Central Missouri on Friday, then led the Lady Panthers with 14 points and seven rebounds in 20 minutes of playing time in a 72-44 victory over Northern Michigan the following day.
The honor marks the fifth time in Diestelkamp’s career she has been named the GLVC Player of the Week.
