Congratulations to senior outfielder, Drew Loy, and junior pitcher, Kennedy Peckinpaugh, as they have been named our American Family Insurance Ashlie Adsit McCutcheon Student-Athletes of the Week!
Loy, a senior speedster for the Mavs Baseball team, helped keep the Mav’s record unblemished (7-0, 1-0 NCC) during last week’s Joe Heath Classic. The Mavs topped the Huntington North Vikings by the score of 9-2 on Friday. In that game, Loy went 1-3 with an RBI, and 2 Runs scored. He also stole a base, bringing his total to 8 on the season! On Saturday, Loy came up clutch, driving in fellow senior, Payton Fulk, for the walk-off run versus the Chesterton Trojans! In that game, Loy went 2-5 with a stolen base and his lone RBI which proved to be the game-winner.
Drew is also adept at keeping his report cards unblemished, carrying a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA!
Kennedy, a junior pitcher/utility player for the Maverick Softball team, has had a tremendous start to the 2021 season. Last week Peckinpaugh used a hot bat and a strong arm to help the Mavs win four of their five games, beating the likes of Jeff, West Lafayette, and Covington (DH). In the first game vs Covington, Kennedy threw a complete game shutout with 15K’s. She also tallied another dinger to her season total (7). She has had two multi-home run games (vs Jeff and West Lafayette) and has also thrown two complete-game shutouts (vs Covington and Knox). The IndyStar has taken notice of Peckinpaugh’s hot start, naming her the Top Softball Performer for last week!
