West Central Area senior Claire Stark is the Olson Oil Company Athlete of the Week.  Stark reached 1,000 career points on Saturday as the lady Knights overcame a 13 point deficit and rallied to beat Minnewaska Area, 74-59, in the opening round of the Section 3AA North Girls Basketball Tournament in Glenwood.

Stark’s milestone point tied the game at 55-55 and sparked a 15-2 run by WCA that led them to the win.  She finished the game with a double-double (19 points, 12 rebounds).

The lady Knights, seeded sixth in the North half of 3AA, will now face number two seed Montevideo in the quarterfinal round of the Section Tournament on Tuesday in Willmar.
