Monmouth Regional Freshman Mia Troese Captures Player of the Week Award
There is little doubt that Mia Troese has made an immediate impact on a Monmouth Regional program that has doubled its win total from the 2019-20 season when they went 2-18. The freshman leads the team in scoring, assists and steals and led the Falcons to three consecutive wins during the week of February 22 for which she was voted the Burger 25 Player of the Week award.
The 5'8 point guard averaged nearly 14 points per game along with 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals as Monmouth following an 0-4 start beat Long Branch twice and Freehold. Those statistics pretty much mirror what Troese has done all season long and with the Falcons returning every player on their roster the future looks bright for her and the Falcons.
Troese received 31% of the vote, nearly double that of Manasquan's Brooke Hollawell who was second with Chelsea Lavezzo of Jackson Liberty third in what was by far the largest voting turnout of the season. For her efforts Mia receives a $25 gift card from Burger 25 of Toms River which will require a bit of a road trip but is well worth the effort.
