ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: Keira Johnson, Forks basketball

Forks’ Keira Johnson has been red-hot through January, helping the Spartans to their first-place position in the Pacific 2B League standings.

Johnson hit five 3-pointers and scored 32 points against Ilwaco on Jan. 12. She followed that up by scoring 24 points against North Beach — in a half — in a blowout win on Jan. 14.

Finally, she had another big game with 30 points against Chief Leschi on Jan. 17. That’s an average of 28.7 points a game in three straight wins.

Unfortunately, Johnson injured her ankle and has missed her last couple of games, but the Spartans rallied to win both of them without her. Here’s hoping she returns soon to the lineup.
