LaDaesha Merriweather, Women's Basketball, Week of Jan. 14-20

The VC women's basketball is having another strong season, in part due to the efforts of LaDaesha Merriweather. The 5-foot-9-inch forward from Golden Valley High School in Santa Clarita has answered the call, leading the Pirates with 10.4 rebounds per game. A week ago she had a 12 points and 21 huge rebounds in the Pirates' last-second victory over Palomar, and on Saturday she posted another double-double with 13 points and 12 boards in the Western State Conference opener against Santa Barbara. For her efforts, LaDaesha has been named this week's VC Pirate Student Athlete of the Week.
