Still wins Athlete of the Week


SULLIVAN (WCIA) — Avery Still is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week, and the final winner of 2019. The senior forward from Sullivan High School has led the Redskins to a 6-2 record this season, and a No. 9 ranking in the 2A Class.

Still is averaging 12 points, seven rebounds, and three steals per game. She had a breakout performance against Champaign Central this season earning a double-double with 11 points and 15 rebounds.

“I think coach counts on me a lot, as the ‘big girl in the paint,'” says Still. “But all of us have a special place on the floor, and we all lead in some different way.”

Still is now eligible for a $500 scholarship we’ll give away in June. One boy and one girl from our pool of 40 weekly winners will take home the award. To nominate the next WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week, click here:
