DAHLONEGA, GA – Jaymee Carnes has been named the Moe's Southwest Grill North Georgia Athlete of the Week after leading the Lady Saints to a pair of wins, including a come-from-behind 73-70 overtime victory at Newberry. 

The sophomore from Gainesville, Georgia, continued her dominance, averaging 36.5 points per game and 13 rebounds per game last week for the Lady Saints.

On December 19, Carnes wrapped up North Georgia's final game of an eight game home stand to open the season with a 34-point, 12 rebound performance.

Not to be outdone, she followed that up pouring in 39 points, grabbing 14 boards and swatting five shots.

Last week Carnes scored 50-percent of the Lady Saints points and upped her scoring average to 28.3, which leads both the Peach Belt Conference and the nation.

Carnes and the Lady Saints look to stay hot as they open a two-game Peach Belt Conference road trip, with the first stop being at Clayton State tonight at 5:30 p.m.
