Athlete of the Week: Borst a key component to Trojansí success

Greene senior Barb Borst will do whatever it takes to help her team win. What she is doing best this year; however, her fourth on the Trojansí varsity basketball team, is put points on the scoreboard.

Coming off a career-best 12.0 points per game as a junior, Borstís tireless work ethic has translated to a 16.5 points per game average, and she already had three 20-plus point games this year after recording none in 23 games a year ago.

Borst caught fire during a three-minute stretch to start the second half in last Saturdayís Pennysaver tournament championship game. Tied with Sidney at the break, Borst scored eight of her game-high 18 points helping unbeaten Greene capture the title. Earlier that week, Borst had her best game of the season against the Trojansí most difficult opponent. Facing a perfect Union-Endicott club in the Greene Holiday Tournament finals, Borst again tossed up 18 points, played tough defense, and hit free throws at the end of the game to secure a five-point win.
