A notable milestone was celebrated with a notable victory by Weller and Jackson Northwest on Jan. 9. The four-year varsity standout scored 18 points and reached 1,000 for her career as the Mounties won 43-35 over Coldwater, which joined Northwest as co-champion in the Interstate 8 Athletic Conference last season. The win over Coldwater also was the Mounties’ second this season avenging a loss from 2022-23.

Weller is averaging 20 points, seven rebounds, two assists and three steals per game this winter, and Northwest is 7-1 and a combined 57-15 over her four seasons on varsity. She scored 33 points Tuesday against Marshall as Northwest took over first place alone in the I8AC. Also a three-year varsity volleyball player and all-area selection in that sport, Weller will continue her basketball career at Spring Arbor and is considering studying physical therapy.
