Norwell’s Will Geiger and South Side’s Taniece Chapman have been named Prep Hoops Fan Vote Players of the Week for Dec. 26-Dec. 30.
Geiger gets the nod on the boys side after a strong showing during the Huntington North/Columbia City tournament. The Norwell sophomore scored 21 points on Thursday in a 68-41 loss to highly ranked Class 4A opponent Hamilton Southeastern. He then scored 32 points on Friday in a 60-53 win over Whitko and 23 more in a win over Bellmont that same day.
Geiger received 40.34 percent of the fan vote, beating out South Side’s Mikale Stevenson, North Side’s Austin Boucher, New Haven’s James Gardner and Blackhawk Christian’s Jalan Mull.
Chapman also used a strong tournament showing to capture the fan vote on the girls side. Chapman’s South Side Archers captured the Summit Athletic Conference Holiday Tournament title in part thanks to her 28 point, 16 rebound effort in Saturday’s championship win over Carroll. In Friday’s semifinal, she scored a team high 17 points in a rout of Northrop. She also had 22 points on Thursday in a win over Bishop Dwenger.
Chapman received 39.52 percent of the fan vote for the girls, beating out Norwell’s Aubrey Dunnuck, Leo’s Sophia Pierce, Carroll’s Kelli Damman and Bishop Luers’ Kathryn Knapke.
