Boys Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Volleyball · SAOTW – Natalie Bonilla & Keondre Garing

Congratulations to senior Volleyballer, Natalie Bonilla, and sophomore runner Keondre Garing, as they have been named our American Family Insurance Ashlie Adsit McCutcheon Student-Athletes of the Week!

Natalie, a senior, is an incredibly positive and hardworking Lady Mav Volleyball player.  She plays one of the Middle Blockers for the Mavs and has developed into a dual-threat at the net.  Last week she helped lead the Mavs to an incredible 6-0 mark with wins over Danville, BC, CC, Logansport, Jeff, and Harrison.  What was even more incredible is that the Lady Mavs never even dropped a set en route to their 4th consecutive NCC Tourney Title!  Natalie had a strong NCC Tourney in which she tallied 14 Kills (67%) and 4 Blocks.  Coach Sutter praises Natalie’s work ethic in practice and her positive leadership in the team huddle as crucial aspects of her game.

Natalie also gets the job done in the classroom where she carries an outstanding 3.4 GPA!

Keondre ran the best race of his career (18:18) last Saturday in his first Varsity Cross-Country meet!  Mr. Garing has cut almost two minutes off his time with dedicated training and a positive “team-first” mentality.  When McCutcheon’s top runner, Damian Sanchez, was unable to race at Sectionals, everyone knew that someone needed to step-up in order for the Mav’s to move onto Regionals.  Deondre answered that call and his efforts helped extend the Mav’s season another week!

Deondre is also an honors student that carries a strong work ethic in the classroom.  He has an impressive 3.5 cumulative GPA!

Excellent work by these student-athletes in the classroom, on the court, and on the course!  Their work ethic and commitment to improving are the reasons they this week’s stewards of #MavPRIDE!
