Dickerson voted athlete of the week
BRATTLEBORO — It's unknown how Halle Dickerson ended up with the basketball jersey she wore for the Bellows Falls varsity girls basketball team this winter.
Gilbert Arenas chose No. 0 after being told he would play zero minutes for the Arizona Wildcats. For Portland star Damian Lillard, the number represents the letter O and his journey — from Oakland, Calif. to his college town of Ogden, Utah.
BF's "Agent Zero" was looking like a combination of those two during a playoff game against rival Springfield, which earned her 172 votes and Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week honors for Feb. 24 to March 2.
"Very proud of you Halle Dickerson for your dedication the whole year," JoAnna Dent Dickerson noted on her online ballot.
Dickerson joins Joe Terry (Bellows Falls boys basketball), Christian Thomsen (Leland & Gray boys basketball), Brandon Doyle (Hinsdale Unified basketball), Rachael Rooney (Brattleboro girls basketball), Taylor Goodell (Bellows Falls girls basketball), Anthony Palomba (Brattleboro boys hockey), Abbe Cravinho (Bellows Falls girls basketball), Gavin Howard (Brattleboro boys hockey), Tyler Millerick (Brattleboro boys basketball), Maya Waryas (Bellows Falls girls basketball) and Eliya Petrie (Brattleboro girls hockey) as this winter's winners. All of them earned a free night of cosmic bowling at Brattleboro Bowl.
