Cheely wins Athlete of the Week

High School Sports

VILLA GROVE (WCIA) — Reagan Cheely is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. The Villa Grove shortstop and pitcher is leading the team with a .461 average to go along with 47 RBI. In the circle, the junior multi-sport standout has 60 strikeouts with a 3.9 ERA. It’s helped the Blue Devils to a 21-12 record and a top sub-sectional seed. The program is looking to win its first regional title since 2005 on Friday when they host St. Teresa.

“It’s fun,” Cheely said. “Softball’s fun in general but I really love being with my team and competing. I know we’re supposed to make it really far, at least that’s my plan and I know that’s the rest of them too. Of course we’re excited but we’ve just got to play one inning at a time or we’ll get too caught up in the game if we don’t.”

Cheely is now eligible for a $500 scholarship we’ll give away in June to one weekly winner. To vote for the next Athlete of the Week, click here:
