Congratulations to senior Basketball guard, Daylynn Thornton, and senior Wrestler, Garrett Farrar, as they have been named our American Family Insurance Ashlie Adsit McCutcheon Student-Athletes of the Week!
Daylynn, a multi-sport senior, is an incredibly active scorer and defender for Coach Knoy’s Lady Maverick Basketball team. Her strong guard play during the Lake Central Holiday Tournament helped the Mavs go 2 – 1 with wins over Portage and LaPorte. Thornton led the Lady Mavs in scoring throughout the Tourney (19.3 ppg) and dropped 22 pts in their win over Portage.
Daylynn also gets the job done in the classroom where she carries a 3.73 cumulative GPA! Her teachers rave about her upbeat personality and her personification of McCutcheon’s values of Mind, Heart, and Spirit.
Garrett is a senior grappler for the McCutcheon Wrestling team and has had a strong start to the season. Over Winter Break, Farrar wrestled some tough matches en route to a 4 – 1 record. Head Coach Adam Metzger praises Garrett’s work ethic in practice and his ability to wrestle every match like it’s his last.
Garrett also gets it done in the classroom where he maintains a 3.44 cumulative GPA!
Excellent work by these student-athletes on the court, the mat, and in the classroom! Keep up the great work and keep on representing your teams with Positivity – Respect – Integrity – Determination – and Empathy!
