BRATTLEBORO — 100 por ciento.

That’s what the Bellows Falls student whose favorite class is Spanish gave against Mill River, scoring 22 points to lead her school’s varsity girls basketball team to victory. Laura Kamel then received 326 votes to earn Sam’s Outdoor Outfitters and Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week honors.

“As a teammate, Laura is very supportive. She has great knowledge and a love for the game, which make her a huge asset on our team,” said BF forward Nola Sciacca.

Kamel, who does most of her damage in the post, pumped in 19 points and pulled down six offensive rebounds during a home game against Hartford on Dec. 30.
