Hanover’s Ceegan Atkins – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Multisports

By Matt Browning 

Ceegan Atkins of Hanover was chosen as the Multisports Athlete of the Month for November. Atkins was a first team all-league selection last season for the Wildcats.

Throughout the offseason, Atkins watched a significant amount of film to evaluate what she needed to work on.

“I came up with three things I absolutely want to improve on every day in practice,” Atkins said. “I believe if I focus on these three things daily, and continue to reflect on my individual weaknesses to create new goals, I will be able to improve overall as a player.”

Atkins joins a talented and experienced roster that could be a factor in Class 1A Division II.

“We have quite a few returning varsity players who have state experience, as well as underclassmen who stepped up during the previous season and that I have no doubt will step up again in basketball season,” Atkins said. “I also believe that leadership on and off the floor will play a big part too, we have a group of girls who are willing to put in the work to get better.”

There is no doubt Atkins has the physical attributes to be a dominating force, but she wanted to make sure her mental capabilities match her on-court talent.

“The brain powered portion of the game, in my opinion, is the most important,” Atkins said. “It includes discipline, anticipation on the floor, and an overall basketball IQ. I have no doubt my body will do anything it’s told and improve in that aspect but I want to be able to adapt to new teams, plays, and situations as quickly as they change on the court, and that is largely a mental capability.”
