Young earns another honor

Nylah Young earned another Big South Conference Award as Co-Freshman of the Week.

The former King’s Fork girls’ hoops standout and current Hampton University Pirate continues to build on her impressive freshman season. She earned another Big South Freshman of the Week honor last week after helping her team go 2-0. During those two games, she averaged 17 points. She also had a double-double against Presbyterian College, with 17 points and 12 rebounds.

Young is now up to averaging 13.1 points per game this season and 7.2 rebounds. She is third on the team in scoring and has seemed to improve every game.

At King’s Fork, Young was a two-time Southeastern District Player of the Year and a two-time Suffolk News-Herald Winter Female Player of the Year.
