Aguirre helped the Marquette Catholic girls’ basketball team pull off a pair of Prairie State Conference road victories last week.
The junior guard scored 11 points in the Explorers’ 54-32 win over Bunker Hill on Jan. 2. Three days later, she finished with 19 in Marquette’s 55-43 victory over Nokomis.
The strong effort in both conference games earned Aguirre this week’s AdVantage News Athlete of the Week award.
Aguirre helped the Explorers start off 3-0 in Prairie State Conference play. They were scheduled to play Mount Olive on Thursday and will wrap up league play on Jan. 17 against Metro East Lutheran. Marquette began its conference season on Nov. 21 with a 55-25 win over EA-WR.
Aguirre is playing in her second season with the Marquette varsity squad. She played in 27 games and averaged two points per game last year.
