K.C. Stralka ’16 was named Midwest Conference Performer of the Week on Monday after leading the Foresters to a pair of league victories on the road last week.
Stralka, a senior forward, scored a career-high 25 points in the Foresters’ 81-74 victory at Beloit College on Wednesday. She shot 11-for-17 in the contest and added seven rebounds, two assists, and a steal in 35 minutes of play.
Lake Forest prevailed 63-59 at Illinois College on Saturday and Stralka finished with a dozen points and 11 rebounds for her sixth double-double of the season. She also had a pair of blocked shots to move into sole possession of second place in program history with 91 in her career.
As the Foresters near the half-way mark of the regular season, Stralka ranks among the MWC leaders with 12.5 points (14th), 10.3 rebounds (2nd), 2.2 assists (15th), 1.5 blocked shots (2nd), and 33.0 minutes played (6th) per game. She is also 10th in the league with a .467 field goal percentage and 14th with a .686 free throw percentage.
