Catherine Shope was the 2018 Forsyth County News Player of the Year at North Forsyth, where she averaged 18 points per game her senior season and set the Raiders' single-season scoring record. Now, she's a significant contributor on Reinhardt University's basketball team and was named Appalachian Athletic Conference Player of the Week last month.

She's scored at least 23 points six times this season, including Jan. 2 when she scored a career-high 33 points in a 95-83 loss to Bryan. Shope was a perfect 7-for-7 from the free-throw line and connected on 4 of 8 3-pointers in the loss. Reinhardt is 12-2 this season and 9-2 in conference play.
