The April Female Athlete of the Month is Maryellen Leach a member of the varsity softball team. In the month of April, Maryellen pitched a no hitter vs Proctor in a 3-0 win and has pitched 2 shutouts thus far with 15 strike out per game. Along with strong pitching, she has a .531 batting average and leads the team with 11 RBIs. Overall, she leads the team on the mound and at the plate. The team’s record would be very different if she wasn’t performing like this! Many umpires have asked the coaching staff “where is she going to college next year?” and she isn’t even a senior! Maryellen has also been an amazing captain during the craziness of the schedule. For her leadership and outstanding performances in April, Maryellen Leach was recognized by the New Hampton Athletic Department as the April Female Athlete of the Month.
The December Male Athlete of the Month goes to Guthrie Little, a member of the Varsity “B” Basketball Team. Guthrie has been a leader since the first practice and was elected captain for the second straight year. He has spent much of his time around the younger players trying to help them develop their skills and make sure they understand the team expectations. On the court, he hustles for every loose ball and has hit big shots in close games for the Huskies. Guthrie is the team’s best defender and is usually tasked with guarding the oppositions best perimeter player. He has shown strong leadership and overall great team play. Congratulations Guthrie!
