The Alexandria Sportsman’s Club recognized rising St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes basketball star Dhyamond Crenshaw as the city’s athlete of the month for January.

The junior forward leads her teammates in scoring, racking up 254 points in the squad’s first 15 games of the season. The 6-foot tall stand out enjoyed her best performance of the year — singlehandedly putting away 27 points — in a 50-47 win against Sidwell Friends on December 13.

The Saints have gone 10-5 overall, 5-0 in conference action, with Crenshaw as co-captain. She also has been selected to two all-tournament teams in the past year.

Crenshaw returns to the court with her teammates on Friday to take on Highland at home. The game is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.
