Cassopolis' Kevin Luckey and Dowagiac's Brittney Reist have been named Leader Publication's Athletes of the Week for Dec. 27-31.
Luckey scored 25 points to lead Cassopolis to third place in the Holiday Basketball Tournament held in White Pigeon.
Reist helped Dowagiac reach the semifinals of its own invitational volleyball tournament.
Each week, the athletic directors from Dowagiac, Cassopolis and Edwardsburg will nominate players for the Athlete of the Week.
The sports editor of the Dowagiac Daily News will then select a boys' and girls' winner for each week.
Each senior winner will be eligible to apply for the scholarship at the end of the school year.
Each week's winners will also receive a month's subscription to the newspaper of the community they represent.
In April, each senior Athlete of the Week winner from all three sports seasons will submit an application for the scholarship.
Leader Publications will then select a boys' and girls' Athlete of the Year from either Cassopolis, Dowagiac or Edwardsburg.
The two athletes will receive a scholarship for an as yet to be determined amount.
The winners will be named in May.
