A trio of three-game standouts has been selected as Week 3 winners in the IBCA/Franciscan Health Player of the Week program.

Pioneer senior Ashlynn Brooke, Jay County senior Renna Schwieterman and Indian Creek junior Lauren Foster each is cited following outstanding performances during the week of Nov. 14-19 in the recognition program coordinated by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association. Brooke is honored in District 1. Schwieterman is cited in District 2. Foster is recognized in District 3.

Brooke, a 5-7 guard, averaged 30.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 3.0 steals and surpassed 1,000 points for her career in a week in which Pioneer (4-0) defeated Clinton Central, Knox and Culver Community. The Ball State signee now has 1,057 points in 51 career games, becoming her school’s fifth player to reach the milestone.

In a 65-64 victory over Clinton Central, Brooke totaled 28 points, six rebounds, three assists and four steals while hitting 8-15 field goals, 3-7 3-pointers and 9-10 free throws. In a 58-41 triumph over Knox, she notched 31 points, eight rebounds, two assists and two steal while converting 12-23 field goals, 5-12 3-pointers and 2-2 free throws. In a 62-49 win over Culver Community, Brooke again scored 31 points with two rebounds, five assists and three steals while making 12-21 field goals, 4-10 3-pointers and 3-3 free throws.

Brooke reached the 1,000-point club against Knox and joins four others from her school with this elite status – 2022 graduate Hailey Cripe with 1,675 points, 1995 graduate Denise Kerr with 1,466 points, 1999 graduate Danielle Kerr with 1,413 points and 2011 graduate Kelsey Williams with 1,083 points.

Schwieterman averaged 23.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.7 steals in propelling Jay County (4-1) to triumphs over Oak Hill (67-42), Bellmont (56-47) and Winchester (62-33).

A Purdue-Fort Wayne signee, Schwieterman totaled 25 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and five steals while hitting 8-19 field goals, 5-11 3-pointers and 4-4 free throws against Oak Hill. The 6-0 guard tallied 20 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal while making 7-19 field goals, 3-9 3-pointers and 3-4 free throws against Bellmont. She notched 26 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals while converting 11-19 field goals and 4-6 3-pointers against Winchester.

Foster, also a 5-7 guard, averaged 24.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists in leading Indian Creek to the Johnson County Tournament championship with victories over Franklin Community, Greenwood and Center Grove. The county title is the Braves’ first since 2002.

In a 66-56 victory against Franklin, Foster poured in 35 points with three rebounds and five assists while making 9-13 from the field, 1-2 3-pointers and a remarkable 16-16 free throws. In a 38-19 semifinal triumph over Greenwood, she tallied 17 points, two rebounds and two assists while converting 5-8 field goals, 2-4 3-pointers and 5-6 free throws. In a 48-38 win over Center Grove in the final, Foster scored 20 points with two rebounds and two assists while hitting 6-6 field goals and 8-9 free throws.

This is the 15th season for the IBCA Player of the Week program and the third season the awards are being presented by Franciscan Health Sports Medicine, a corporate partner of the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.

Player of the Week winners are chosen each week from each of the IHSAA’s three districts. Girls’ winners are chosen from now through the Monday following the IHSAA Girls’ State Finals. Boys’ winners will be chosen starting next week and through the Monday following the IHSAA Boys’ State Finals.
