Bell named conference athlete of the week again

AMES, IA – Northeast Community College’s Sierra Bell has been recognized by the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference with its Division I Women’s Basketball Athlete of the Week.

Last week, Bell helped lead the Hawks to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XI championship. In the two wins against Marshalltown and Iowa Western, Bell racked up 17 points. She shot seven of 19 from the floor while also contributing six assists. Defensively, Bell, a 5’ 7” sophomore from Danville, IL, managed to grab 10 rebounds.

Bell earned the ICCAC Athlete of the Week recognition back in November.

With its Region XI championship, Northeast (25-4) will now host #4 Moberly (MO) Area Community College (31-0) on Friday, March 9, for the District K Championship. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. in the Cox Activities Center on the Northeast campus in Norfolk.

The winner advances to the NJCAA Division I Women’s National Tournament in Lubbock, TX, later this month.
