These four students were honored as the April 2016 Athletes of the Month:

From CGA: Korryn Brewer

Korryn Brewer, a junior from Cincinnati, Ohio is a member of the CGA Varsity Lacrosse team. Brewer has accumulated a staggering total of 34 goals and 21 assists for 55 points – a state-leading 8 points-per-game average.  To date, she has a career record of 115 goals and 80 assists. This offensive firepower has helped guide the Eagles to an 8-1 record.  According to Coach Debi Trau, “Korryn’s offensive skills and aggressive play to date have set a high bar among Indiana’s elite girls’ lacrosse players.”

Emily Lipsett

From CGA: Emily Lipsett

Emil Lipsett ’18 (LaPorte, Ind.) is a two-year starter for the 10-2 Eagles softball team. For her performance during the first two weeks of the season, she was recognized as the Max Preps High School Player of the week. She went 16-for-16 at the plate during the first four games. She also leads the state in Batting Average and On-Base Percentage. Lipsett is also sixth in the state for stolen bases and ninth for slugging percentage. Head coach Dawn Minas said, “Emily is an all-around exceptional player.  She has a drive and skillset that make her a phenomenal player on the field. She is a true leader by example, and her determination and work ethic are second to none – an outstanding student-athlete in every sense of the word!”

Liam Duff

Liam Duff

From CMA: Liam Duff

The defensive play of Liam Duff ’17 (Lake Bluff, Ill.) has been one of the highlights of the CMA Prep Lacrosse season to date. Over the past month, the 14-3 Eagles have played one of the most challenging schedules in the country and are currently ranked 10th in USA Today’s poll. Pitted against teams with numerous Division I-bound high-scoring attackmen, Culver’s defense has risen to the challenge in each game. Despite being matched against the opponent’s best attackman (players who routinely score upwards of five-plus goals a game), Duff often limits his man to one or no points. In one game, Liam guarded a player who scored 8 goals against Team USA earlier this year; against Culver he found the net only once. According to Coach John Posner, “This dominance has led opposing fans and coaches alike to heap praise on the University of Delaware commit. His outstanding play is no doubt a result of his constant commitment to improvement and excellence.”

Eric Burns

Eric Burns

From CMA: Eric Burns

Eric Burns ’16 (New Carlisle, Ind.) has literally soared into the records book.  Burns finished second in the long jump at the New Balance Nationals Emerging Elite indoor track meet in New York in March, setting a CMA indoor school record. In addition, he won the Midwest Prep title on April 16 with 3 jumps over 23 feet – another school record, which had previously stood for 103 years. That mark, set by Phil Stiles from the Class of 1913, was a national record for 31 years as well as a Indiana state record for 45 years. According to Coach’s Mike Chastain, “Eric has continued to follow a highly detailed and intensive workout plan.  He is a consummate competitor with the drive to practice conscientiously. He allows his competition to drive his motivation to excel.”
