Each week, North Fulton Sports Report will honor and highlight one local student-athlete who performed at an elite level within their sport.
The first-ever NFSR Athlete of the Week is Monet Dance of Mount Pisgah Christian School.
Dance, a sophomore guard on Mount Pisgah’s girls basketball team, scored a total of 82 points in the Patriots’ two victories last week. The talented underclassmen dropped 39 points in a Jan. 5 win over Lakeview Academy and 43 points in a Jan. 8 win over Pinecrest Academy.
Dance has scored at least 30 points in five of Mount Pisgah’s six games this season, and she’s scored 40-plus points twice.
Mount Pisgah stands at 4-2 overall and 2-0 in region play. The Patriots’ next game is Jan. 13 against No. 1-ranked St. Francis (8-2, 1-0).
