Top Performer winner

Frannie Hottinger, Cretin-Derham Hall. One of the leading scorers in the state continued to produce for her team.

Jordyn Glynn, Grand Meadow. Glynn scored 20 or more points in three wins last week to help Grand Meadow remain unbeaten this season. Her best showing came on Feb. 4, against Lewiston-Altura, when the senior put in 25 points and 10 rebounds in a 60-34 win.

Lindsey Smitsdorff, Legacy Christian. After Legacy Christian suffered two straight losses, Smitsdorff asserted herself by recording 23 points, 12 boards, three assists, two steals and two blocks to beat Trinity 52-31 on Feb. 9.
