Throughout the season, Jasmine has helped the Lady Cats make it through region and earn a spot in the State Playoffs.
The final Player of the Week recipient for the Gilmer Bobcats week 10 is Tripp Pierce.
Tripp has been a standout for the team all year as a senior. His leadership and consistent play throughout the 2018-2019 season has been a major role in the Bobcats excellent season.
The Team FYN Sports Lady Cat Player of the Week for week 9 is Emma Callihan.

In the home game vs. Heritage, Callihan scored 20 points for her highest point total on the season.
The week 9 Player of the Week for the Gilmer Bobcats chosen by Team FYN Sports is Sophomore Carson Pierce.
Carson is ready to play when his number is called. Coming off the bench, he averages a little under 3 points per game but more importantly the hustle and drive Carson brings to the floor is setting him up for his Junior and senior years as a Bobcat.

Wearing #11, Burnette is yet another sophomore Lady Cat that gets quality minutes on the court in relief of the starting five.
