(WSIL) -- It's Monday, and that means a new set of nominees for Player of the Week!
Our nominees are Carterville senior Abbey Crain, Massac County junior Farrah Castleman, and Mt. Vernon sophomore Claire Heinzman.
Carterville is off to a fast 8-1 start, and Crain is a big reason why. Crain had 13 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, in a 48-43 Southern Illinois River-to-River Mississippi Conference win over Anna-Jonesboro.
In Massac County, Castleman helped her team win the City of Metropolis Tournament. Castleman was named tournament MVP and scored 23 points in the championship, a 52-33 win over Mayfield.
With the help of Heinzman, Mt. Vernon improves to 2-1 in the South Seven Conference with a 60-30 road victory over Marion. Heinzman led the Rams with 14 points and helped keep the Wildcats scoreless for nearly ten minutes in the second half.
Voting ends Wednesday. The winner will be announced Thursday.
