LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Head coach Kelsey Wides and the McCutcheon Mavericks Softball program had momentum going into the 2020 season. In 2019, a 17-7 finish earned them the second spot in the North Central conference. The Mavs made an appearance in the sectional seven final, falling to rival Harrison High School by only a single run. McCutcheon Softball will lose four seniors to graduation.
Britney Butcher played utility, and is planning on attending cosmetology school after graduation.
Jamison Royer played at the corners. She’s heading to Munice this fall to study special education.
Savannah Meadows played catcher. She hit over 500 at the plate in 2019, and added 9 RBI as well. Meadows is heading to Ivy Tech this fall and is currently undecided on a major.
Kenzie Nydegger played in the outfield. Nydegger is the valedictorian for this year’s graduating class, with an unblemished 4.0 GPA. Her fielding percentage is also unblemished at 100%. She’ll be attending Purdue this fall, majoring in Biochemistry on a Premedicine track.
Coach Wides told WLFI this year’s senior group were role models for the entire Maverick softball program.
“I think that those four seniors really embodied what you want a senior McCutcheon Maverick to be,” said Wides. “ Always doing the right thing...committed to what they were doing, and just a good all around student athlete.”
