HASLETT, MI (WLNS) – The 6 Sports Player of the Week is a Haslett Senior Basketball star who is the straw that stirs the drink in Haslett as her coach says. She helped lead her team to a comeback win earlier this week and had a big game last Friday.
The clear-cut leader of the Haslett Vikings is Senior Guard Megan Mowid.
“What’s great about Megan is that she’s an athlete. She’s a great basketball player, but she’s an athlete,” said Coach Bob Currier, Haslett Basketball.
And it’s been her number one sport since the 1st grade.
“When you’re little, like you’re always playing with your friends, like it’s really fun then so like just growing up with them my entire life is when it all started,” said Megan Mowid, 6 Sports Player of the Week.
In her senior season Mowid has become the Vikings’ go-to player. As in go to Megan and good things will happen.
“She is one of the main leaders on the team. She’s a captain, a leading scoring, leading assist person, all of those things, so that puts her in the forefront,” said Coach Currier.
People describe her as cool, calm and collected, but what really goes through her mind when she steps foot on that arc?
“So it doesn’t really come to my mind when I’m playing in the game, I’m kinda just like willing to do whatever it takes at like the given time,” said Mowid.
Tuesday night Haslett trailed Holt by 12 points. Then Megan scored 21 second half points to help lead the Vikings to 64-52 victory. Can you say leader step up?
“Megan has become the straw so to speak, I mean she does make our team go again,” said Coach Currier.
When this straw is stirring the drink, it’s never about just about herself. She stirs for everyone on her team.
“She’s all about team first and so she scores when we need her, she knows when her teammates are open,” said Coach Currier.
Congratulations Megan Mowid, our 6 Sports Player of the Week.
