“She’s a leader in every way.” – Andra Garvey, Dolphins head basketball coach

Elena Eubank has been a contributor to the Lady Fins varsity basketball team since she was in middle school. Now the junior has stepped into a leadership role, which coach Andra Garvey says she does with finesse. 

“She’s a team leader and helps explain to the team what they are doing right or wrong to improve for the future,” he said. 

Eubanks’ contributions do not stop there. She has consistently led Marathon in scoring this season. Last week, she helped the Fins to a win against Key West in overtime with a 21-point surge. 

“When we need points or (to get) the ball to a certain player, she’s the one to get it done,” Garvey said, adding “she’s a game changer.” For her willingness to shoulder the responsibility of leadership and stellar game play, Marathon’s Elena Eubank is the Keys Weekly Athlete of the Week.
