This week’s featured athlete is Abbie Banks, a 5’2” point guard on the CCC women’s basketball team. Abbie is a freshman from Dalhart, Texas, majoring in Natural Science. This season, she is the second leading scorer on the team, averaging 8.5 points per game. She also leads the team in assists per game with 3.84, and steals with 1.88 per game. She is typically the smallest player on the floor any given night, and yet she is the Tigers’ 3rd leading rebounder with 104 on the year.
When she is not on the basketball court, Abbie’s hobbies include reading, painting, riding horses, being outdoors, working around animals, spending time with family and friends, and listening to music. Her favorite Bible verse is Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
