WQAQ Sports names Erin Kerner Athlete of the Week
HAMDEN — The WQAQ Sports Department has named women’s basketball standout Erin Kerner as its Athlete of the Week for the week ending on January 22.
Kerner, over the course of the season, has led her team in scoring with 16.0 points a game. This week, the junior from Erie, PA led her team by netting 25 points, including the 1,000th of her Quinnipiac career in a 2 point win over NEC pre-season favorite Long Island on Saturday.
On Monday, Kerner continued shooting with her hot hand, scoring 17 of her 21 points in the second half of a matinee Martin Luther King Jr. Day shellacking of St. Francis (NY).
Kerner’s Bobcats are off to the best start in school history at 15-2, including an unblemished 7-0 in Northeast Conference play. The team has also been listed on the ESPN/USA Today Coaches top 25 poll as a team “recieving votes” for the past two weeks.
The Bobcats are back in action on Saturday when they play the second of a three game road trip at NEC foe Sacred Heart. They won’t return to the TD Banknorth Sports Center until February 4th, in a game that will be broadcasted by the Bobcats Sports Network presented by WQAQ.
