For the third time this season, Fort Hays State University junior center Kate Lehman was named the MIAA Athlete of the Week.

The Newton product averaged 18.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game last week as the Tigers went 1-1 on a weekend road trip in Oklahoma. She also blocked seven shots in the two games.

Lehman also climbed into the 1,000-point club in her career with the Tigers. She averages 15.8 points and 11.6 rebounds per game to lead the Tigers, and has racked up 81 blocked shots.

FHSU is at home Thursday against South Dakota School of Mines, then plays at Pittsburg State University on Saturday.
