Congratulations to senior runner, Ja’xon Sibley, and senior tennis player, Amanda Pendleton, as they have been named our American Family Insurance Ashlie Adsit McCutcheon Student-Athletes of the Week!
Ja’xon, middle and long-distance specialist, helped lead the Mavs Track & Field team to a nice win in a three-way meet with Twin Lakes and Southmont (McC 75, TL, 48, SM 44). Ja’xon won the open 800M with a 2:11.04, and was the anchor on the winning 4 x 800M relay team (9:10.10). Sibley was also a varsity runner on the McCutcheon Cross-Country team that qualified for Semi-State this year!
Ja’xon is also keeping ahead of the pack in the classroom where he carries a 3.38 cumulative GPA!
Amanda, is a captain on the Girls Tennis team which just defeated Lafayette Jeff (3-2) last Thursday! In that match, Amanda played #2 singles and won her match 7-5, 6-2. Amanda also serves as her team’s IHSAA representative, talking with the elementary-aged kids in our district about how to successfully navigate being a varsity student-athlete.
Amanda also leads by example in the classroom, where she carries a lofty 3.90 cumulative GPA!
Excellent work by these student-athletes on the court and on the track! Keep up the efforts and keep representing your teams with Positivity – Respect – Integrity – Determination – Empathy!
