St. Joseph, MO – The Central Indians Athletic Department is excited to get your vote for the 2018-19 “Athlete of the Month for NOVEMBER”. Each month the Central Athletic Departments coaches will select their top athlete to be recognized for their outstanding achievements on the field and in the classroom. Fans will be asked to vote for the individual athlete they feel is deserving of the athlete of the month honor. We are now recognizing our winter sports student-athletes for their outstanding contributions and representation to Central Athletics for the month of November.
SWIMMING – Abbey Grooms: Abbey is a team captain for the 2018-19 girls swimming season. She demonstrates strong work ethic in the pool and acts a great role-model for younger swimmers. She is always asking for help on how to improve her strokes and swims. Abbey takes the information given and focuses on each detail in the pool at practices, demonstrating her desire to improve and become the best swimmer she can be. This, in turn, shows that Abbey is a very “coachable” athlete.
WRESTLING – Butch Walters: Butch has entered the season on a mission. He has proven himself as a leader with his hard work in practice and during the off season. Though the wrestling season has just begun, Butch recently defeated a ranked opponent from Fort Osage and wrestled very tough against the 5th ranked 138lb. wrestler from LS West. Currently Butch is 4-1 on the season.
GIRLS BASKETBALL – Lauren Eiman: Lauren had a solid 9 point / 6 rebound performance vs Bishop Miege last week. Lauren is beginning her sophomore of year of being the starting post player on the Varsity basketball team. Lauren is starting to show a lot of growth and maturity in how she is playing and is also excelling in the classroom earning straight A’s in her classes. Lauren is key member and valuable piece to the Lady Indians basketball team and as a student of Central High School. Lauren is very deserving of this nomination.
BOYS BASKETBALL – AJ Redman: AJ scored 18 points in our opening game of the season vs Oak Park. After losing a player due to injury, AJ has really stepped up his effort and focus at practice and it really showed in this game. He is very determined to help lead this team by example this season.
