Rocklin's Brendan Lane and Whitney's Jordan Wilson split the vote
Rocklin High senior Brendan Lane and Whitney High senior Jordan Wilson, both basketball stars, tied in the voting for The Placer Herald’s December Athlete of the Month. Both players received 42 percent of the vote in the contest that also included Rocklin girls basketball junior Katie Summers. Lane, 6-foot-10 and headed to UCLA next year, is averaging 22.2 points per game for the 18-2 Thunder. They are 5-0 in the Sierra Foothill League. Wilson, a guard/forward, has helped the Wildcats start 5-1 in the Pioneer Valley League. He is averaging about 14 points per game. Because of a change to the format of www.placerherald.com, the vote ended on Jan. 17, five days earlier than scheduled. We apologize for this.
