Twelve Culver student-athletes were recognized as the May Athletes of the Month, the final group of the 2016-17 school year.
CGA: Jessica Turner
Jessica Turner ’18 (Evansville, Ind.) has scored an impressive 60 goals and 15 assists. She has averaged nearly five points per game and been a dominant force on the draw throughout the season. Jessica scored six goals in CGA’s second round playoff game against Zionsville and followed that with a five-goal performance in the quarter-final victory over Carmel.
After a great regular season in which Jessica was named the Indianapolis Star Player of the Week, she has really improved her game in the Eagles run to championship weekend.
CGA: Varsity 4+

The varsity 4 rowers compiled a season record of 34-7 in five regattas, placing first in four regattas and a fourth place finish at the Midwest Scholastic Championship. As a result of their fourth place finish at the regional championship from a field of 19 teams, the girls earned the opportunity to compete at the Scholastic Rowing Association of America championship, where they finished 11th in the nation.
According to head coach Guy Weaser, “All the members of this crew are hard-working seniors and have been committed members of the CGA rowing team each of their years at Culver.”

During the month of May, Mikey Perea ’19 (Arvada, Colo.) averaged a score of below 40 in eight of his ten 9-hole rounds of golf. He also shot an impressive 2-under par 34 – the lowest score at home this season. His 72-even par score helped the CMA Golf team win the Uebele Invitational in LaPorte – the longest running tournament in the state. According to head coach Sam Mavrick, “Mikey is a disciplined, level-headed golfer. His steady approach enables him to perform consistently on multiple, challenging course.”
