Freshman center Savannah LeGate of the Oglethorpe women's basketball team has been named the SAAC Female Athlete of the Week for her efforts in the team's run through the SAA Tournament over the weekend.
LeGate scored 24 points in a losing effort against Mary Hardin-Baylor on Sunday, grabbing eight rebounds and making four blocks, as well. She also scored 13 points in the team's win over Emory on Nov. 12, hitting some big baskets down the stretch to help the team to their season-opening win.
She and the rest of the Stormy Petrels defeated Covenant 71-59 on Tuesday evening. They'll now head to LaGrange, Georgia, for the USA South/SAA Classic, where they'll take on Piedmont Saturday at 1 p.m. and LaGrange Sunday at 2 p.m.
