May 6, 2014Columbus North High School
Columbus North senior Emmy Schabel has been named a winner of an IBCA Marion Crawley Scholarship, it was announced Tuesday (May 6).
The Marion Crawley Scholarship is from the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and is named after a longtime boys basketball coach who won 644 career games and four state championships -- two with the Washington Hatchets and two with the Lafayette Jeff Bronchos.
Schabel is one of 31 students (10 boys basketball players, 17 girls basketball players, three student managers/statisticians and one cheerleader) to be awarded a Marion Crawley Scholarship in 2014. Criteria for the awards include achievements and contributions in basketball, extracurricular activities, service to school and scholastic achievements.
"I would like to congratulate you for being selected as a recipient," IBCA executive director Steve Witty wrote to inform Schabel of her selection. "... Thanks for your contributions to Indiana high school basketball, and best of luck as you move on to the college of your choice."
Schabel met criteria in all the areas, and she was nominated for the scholarship by Bull Dogs coach Pat McKee and Columbus North principal David Clark.
On the floor, Schabel was a three-year varsity letterwinner and played a key backup role her final two seasons. She averaged 1.3 points and 1.1 rebounds as a senior in helping the Bull Dogs to a 23-3 record. As a junior, the 5-9 guard/forward tallied 2.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in helping CN to a 25-1 record. As a sophomore, Schabel contributed to a Bull Dogs' group that went 23-4 and finished as the Class 4A state runner-up.
In the classroom, Schabel has been a strong student who has compiled a 4.07 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale. She ranks in the top 10 percent of her senior class and previously received an Outstanding Youth Scholarship presented by The Republic and Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing of Columbus.
Schabel also was selected first-team Academic All-State by the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association and honorable mention Academic All-State by the IBCA.
In the community, Schabel assisted others by being involved in the Student Mentor Program, volunteering in the Summer Lunch Program and teaching in the toddler, preschool and elementary classes at her church. She also has served as an assistant coach for youth basketball teams at the Foundation For Youth and been a reading volunteer for students at Schmitt Elementary.
Schabel plans to continue her education at Butler University, where she will study pharmacy.
Schabel is the fourth CN girls basketball player to earn a Crawley Scholarship over the past four school years. Former Bull Dogs Jocelyn Hamilton (2011), Becca Brougher (2012) and Hanna Ballard (2013) also received Crawley Scholarships from the IBCA.
