VIDEO: Interview with Alex Thomas
St. Elizabeth basketball's Alex Thomas is this week's WDEL High School Athlete of the Week.

The senior combined for 37 points in victories over Appoquinimink and Caravel last week.

Vikings Head Coach Dan Cooney says Alex is an excellent leader.

"She's a kid that I can throw anything at, and she'll do it for me. This is her basketball team. She's been a starter for the past four years, and everything is on her shoulders. We go how as Alex Thomas goes. So far she's having the year of all years, and that's why we're successful."

Off the court, Alex Thomas says she's proud with her involvement with Special Olympics Delaware, which has a major event coming up next weekend.

One of my best friends has always been involved, and she was begging me to come out. I started with soccer, and now I do basketball. I enjoy going to see the smile on their faces and interact with them. They're cool and amazing, they inspire me."

Does this mean she'll do February 1's Polar Bear Plunge in Rehoboth Beach?

"She just asked me about that (Friday), I don't know, but I'm going to try."

The 8-4 Vikings continue their tough schedule with a road game at St. Mark's on Thursday, and then face Archbishop Carroll of Pennsylvania Saturday at Spring-Ford High School.
