Congratulations to senior Unified Athlete, Ian Humphrey, and sophomore guard, Eli Swank, as they have been named our American Family Insurance Ashlie Adsit McCutcheon Student-Athletes of the Week!
Ian, a senior Unified Athlete on the Basketball and Track teams, has had a tremendous career as a Maverick. Ian enjoys and excels in all of his classes here at McCutcheon and loves to participate and cheer on his fellow Mavs at sporting events. This past Tuesday, Ian took part in his last Unified Basketball game as a Mav. He was all smiles throughout the game and even sank a 3-pt shot with his partner, fellow senior Payton Fulk. Ian’s positive attitude and unwavering school spirit are what endears him with his peers. Ian’s hard work and graciousness are what endears him to his teachers and para-professionals. We’re lucky to have Ian as a Maverick and are excited to see him compete again this Track season!
Ian also takes care of his studies in the classroom where he currently carries a lofty 3.88 cumulative GPA!
Eli, a sophomore sharpshooter on the McCutcheon Basketball team (16-3; 9-0 NCC) had one of his best shooting weeks of the season, helping the Mavs to an undefeated NCC Conference Championship! On Tuesday night, Swank knocked down 3 shots from behind the arc and tallied 4 rebounds versus the Anderson Indians, en route to an 82-48 road win for the Mavs! On Friday, Eli scored 10 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in the Maverick’s tough 2OT loss on the road at Lake Central (LC 65 – McC 64). Eli is an active young-man who plays baseball and is also a Unified Flag-Football partner and 2020 State Champion.
Eli is also a champion in the classroom where he carries a perfect 4.0 GPA!
Excellent work by these student-athletes on the hardwood! Keep up the great work and keep representing your teams with Positivity – Respect – Integrity – Determination – Empathy!
