Kyler Columbia 1/10/15

Our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week for this week is Kyler Columbia, a member of the Girls Basketball team at John Glenn High School.

Kyler was named the Most Valuable Player as the Lady Falcons won the Goshen Holiday Tournament with wins over Tipton and Goshen.

In the 64-35 opening win over Tipton, the 5-4 senior scored 18 points, pulled down 4 rebounds, handed out 3 assists, and came up with 2 steals. She followed that in the 72-52 Championship game win over host Goshen with 33 points, including nine 3-pointers, which set a new Lady Falcons record for a single game, a record she reclaimed from teammate Natalie Shetler, who had 7 earlier in the year, breaking Kyler’s previous record of 6 in a game.

As if that record-setting performance wasn’t enough, Kyler came back with 22 points Tuesday night in a win over Mishawaka Marian.

Kyler is the daughter of Rick and Missy Columbia.

Congratulations to Kyler Columbia of John Glenn High School, our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week.
