Week 16: Decatur Christian Starting Five
The entire starting five from Decatur Christian earned Athlete of the Week honors.
Alexis Shew, Emma Macomb, Heidi Heldt, Lisa Echols and Irina Yeakley all have 4.0 GPAs.
There might not be another team in the country that could say that.
In addition to basketball and school, all five starters have either a job or participate in extracurricular activities.
