Eagles News · January Athlete of the Month


Congratulations to Katlyn Butcher for being selected as athlete of the month! Katlyn was nominated by her coach Josh Sparks.

Senior Katlyn Butcher finished fourth at the IHSGW state meet. Although Katlyn would have liked to finish higher, she is still the first Brown County girl to be represented at the IHSGW event.

In the previous week, Katlyn won the southern regional by pinning both Bloomington South’s Ciera Broukal and New Albany’s Hannah Lynch. Unfortunately, last Friday, the girls wrestled better. Butcher lost to Broukal in the semi-finals and then lost again in the third/fourth place match.
Despite the unfortunate end to the evening, Katlyn came back the following day and finished fifth at the W.I.C. meet.
It has been both a pleasure and honor coaching her.
Upon graduating, she plans on wrestling in college, but she is still undecided as to where.
