CHAPEL HILL— Aniylah Bryant of Havelock High School and Brandon Ellington of Community School of Davidson have been named recipients of the NCHSAA Performance of the Week awards. 

Each week, two athletes in North Carolina High School Athletic Association competition are selected for this award from nominations received from media and school administrators.

In action the next day, Bryant contributed 15 points, 5 rebounds and 2 steals in a loss to Jacksonville. Finally, in play 1/19 versus West Carteret, Bryant contributed to the 67 – 41 win over West Carteret with 20 points.
