Boys Varsity Swimming, Girls Varsity Swimming · SAOTW – Katlyn Huycke & Chase Merrell

Congratulations to senior swimmers, Katlyn Huycke and Chase Merrell, as they have been named our American Family Insurance Ashlie Adsit McCutcheon Student-Athletes of the Week!

Katlyn, a 4-year letter winner, is an incredibly gifted senior leader for Coach Landrum’s Lady Maverick Swim & Dive team.  Her lightning-fast swimming was on display at last Saturday’s NCC Championships.  Huycke earned All-Conference recognition for placing 1st (26.75 sec) in the competitive 50 Free race by beating her own seed time by almost half a second!  She also took 3rd in the 100 Free (59.89 sec) and anchored the 3rd place 200 Yd Freestyle Relay (1:52.84).

Katlyn also gets the job done in the classroom where she carries an outstanding 3.94 cumulative GPA!


Chase is also a 4-year letter winning senior swimmer for the Mavericks and has had a strong start to the season.  At the NCC Championships, Merrell swam to three 3rd place finishes in the 500 yd Freestyle (5:13.47), 200 yd Medley Relay (1:49.02), and the 200 yd Freestyle Relay (1:35.54).  Head Coach Christina Landrum praises Chase’s work ethic in practice and his ability to swim in back-to-back events if called upon.

Chase also gets it done in the classroom where he maintains a near-perfect 3.90 cumulative GPA!

Excellent work by these student-athletes in the pool, and in the classroom!  Keep up the great work and keep on representing your teams with Positivity – Respect – Integrity – Determination – and Empathy!
