The Mary Katherine Cheek award is given annually to the outstanding female athlete at SHS. This year’s award was presented to Kamryn Buck. Cheek was a fixture for many seasons at Raider athletic events, especially her favorite sport of softball. Cheek was also a pioneer when it came to girls’ athletics as she played sports at a young age and promoted the development of women’s athletic programs as an adult.
Kamryn Buck played volleyball and softball for the Raiders, earning a varsity letter each season for a total of 8 for her career. Kamryn also overcame a thoracic outlet surgery to her throwing shoulder during her career. She was recently named to the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association North/South All-Star games in softball. She will continue her career at Indiana Wesleyan next year.
