Philipsburg-Osceola High School girls’ basketball player Abby Showers is a Centre Daily Times Athlete of the Week.

Showers, a senior, reached a personal milestone as she helped the Lady Mounties split a pair of games.

On Tuesday, Showers scored 26 points as the Lady Mounties nearly rallied from a 30-point halftime deficit in a 70-64 loss against Clearfield.

Showers entered Wednesday’s game against West Branch needing 12 points to reach 1,000 for her career. She took care of that in the second quarter on the way to a 27-point night as the Lady Mounties triumphed 59-39.

She is the seventh player in program history and first since 2010 to reach 1,000 points.

The Lady Mounties are 5-7 on the season.
