Claiming 55-percent of the nearly 300 votes cast by Press-Tribune readers, Roseville’s Katie Simon is the January athlete of the month. After leading the Lady Tigers in scoring and rebounding as a sophomore one year ago, Katie Simon has continued to impress this season, leading a resurgence by the Lady Tigers as they have climbed into the middle of the Sierra Foothill League race.. The junior post player averages a double-double for Roseville (15 points, 11 rebounds) and has led the Lady Tigers to an 11-9 overall record (3-3 in the SFL) and to within reach of a playoff spot. Simon outpolled Oakmont boys basketball player Tony Gill, and the Woodcreek girls team's Jennifer Judge. Look for the February candidates next week.
