Morningside College junior women’s basketball guard Sierra Mitchell (JR/Pleasant Hill, IA) (Pleasant Hill, Iowa) picked up her second straight and third overall 2019-20 Great Plains Athletic Conference Player of the Week award with the Tuesday, Jan. 21, announcement for the period of Jan. 13-19.
Mitchell turned in a big week for the No. 7-ranked National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Division II Mustangs. She averaged 21.5 points per game during victories over Doane University and No. 9-ranked Dordt University that kept head coach Jamie Sale‘s squad just a game out of first on the loop standings.
During the span, the junior, on the road at Dordt, tallied her fifth career 30-points-or-more contest as Morningside upped its win string to six straight. Mitchell also extended a pair of impressive strings with her seventh and eighth successive double-figure scoring games and 17th and 18th consecutive contests in which she’s hit multiple three-point baskets.
