Congratulations to senior thrower, Ikeava Bryant, and junior pitcher, Brody Fine, as they have been named our American Family Insurance Ashlie Adsit McCutcheon Student-Athletes of the Week!
Ikeava, a senior thrower for the Lady Mavs Track & Field team, had a tremendous start to the 2021 season. Despite missing all of last Spring due to the Covid shut down, and having this year’s indoor season canceled as well, Ikeava has had to wait patiently to compete in the sport she loves. Last Tuesday versus South Newton, Ms. Bryant didn’t waste any time letting everyone in the area know that she is a force to reckon with this Spring, winning both the Shot (39′ 10.5″) and the Discus (101′ 2″) with a pair of impressive distances! Ikeava’s hard work and high energy are what endear her to her coaches and teammates. We’re excited to see how much this senior leader can grow and improve this season!
Ikeava also takes care of her studies in the classroom where she currently carries an impressive 3.55 cumulative GPA!
Brody, a junior hurler for the Mavs Baseball team, helped lead the Mavs to a clean sweep in last weekend’s HSE Royals Classic. The Mavs went 3 – 0 on the weekend beating DeKalb (13-11) in extra innings, Pike (25-4), and the host Royals (5-1) to bring home the trophy! Fine took care of business at the plate, going 6-11 with a grand slam, and 10 RBI’s. He also got the win on the bump versus HSE pitching a complete game tallying 8 K’s and allowing only 3 hits and 1 run on the night.
Brody is also an accomplished student who carries a lofty 3.50 cumulative GPA!
