Dowagiac's Kim Luthringer and Edwardsburg's Nick Roth have been named the Leader Publications Athletes of the Week for the week of Jan. 3-8.
Luthringer had 25 kills, 15 digs and seven aces in helping Dowagiac to a second place finish at the Berrien Springs Invitational on Saturday.
Roth scored a combined 50 points against Coloma and River Valley last week.
Roth's 29 points against Coloma on Friday night included four three-pointers.
Each week, the athletic directors from Dowagiac, Cassopolis and Edwardsburg will nominate players for the Athlete of the Week.
Leader Publications will then select a boys' and girls' winner for the 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.
