Jacob Pettway has been named the Skyhawk Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 18, 2016. 

Pettway averaged 15.5 points and six rebounds in two games last week, leading the Skyhawks to their third and fourth consecutive wins. 

The senior forward scored 10 points and grabbed four boards as Point defeated Montreat College 81-61 on Wednesday. He followed that up with a 21-point, eight-rebound performance in a 68-67 win over Bluefield on Saturday. Pettway scored 12 points in the final ten minutes of that game and finished the game shooting 8-12 from the field and 3-6 from the three-point line. 

The Stone Mountain, Ga. native is now averaging 15.5 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game in eight games this season for the Skyhawks. 

After a slow start to the 2015-16 season, the Skyhawks have won six of their last eight games, rising up from second to last in the AAC standings two weeks ago into a tie for fifth place. 

The Blue and Gold will travel to Waleska, Ga. on Wednesday to face conference opponent Reinhardt University. Both teams sit at 5-5 in conference play, and a win for the Skyhawks could move Point up to fourth in the standings.
