NORFOLK, NE - The Iowa Community College Athletic Conference (ICCAC) has recognized a member of the Northeast Community College women’s basketball team with conference honors. Irene Sanz, a freshman forward from Vilassar de Mar, Spain, was named ICCAC Division I Athlete of the Week.
Sanz is well into a successful first season with the Hawks. Against North Platte last week, she scored a career-high 22 points and shot 50-percent from the floor (6-for-12) and from behind arc (3-for-6). It was her sixth time this season in double-digit scoring, and Northeast won decisively behind her performance, 82-65.
On the week, Sanz scored 30 points, collected four rebounds and dished out six assists.
Northeast (19-2) will host Central Community College tonight at 6 p.m. at the Cox Activities Center on the Norfolk campus. The men's game will follow at 8 p.m.
