Athletes of the Week — Jan. 28

By Staff | Jan 28, 2022

Ishmael Hajmoussa



The senior captain averaged 21 points, eight rebounds, six assists, and three steals over three victories for an Ida Baker team that sits at 12-6 (second in 5A-11) and in recent weeks rattled off eight straight wins.

“We’re just playing well right now. My teammates get me open, and our coaches do a good job of getting us high percentage shots. My jumper has improved a lot, and I work on being able to get to the rim and be a three-level scorer.”

Ashley Retiz 



The composed point guard helped earn her team two victories last week, including a 55-51 win over rival Cape Coral. Retiz averaged 20 points, eight rebounds, five assists and six steals in the contests. 

“We really wanted to win against our rival, and I really pushed myself to help the team succeed in our goal. I’ve been working hard on my game all year.”
