INDIANA -- Forty-two Indiana high school seniors have been presented 2011 scholarship awards from the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association...
The IBCA -- a statewide coaches group with more than 2,600 members -- presents grants of $750 to each recipient in the names of Marion Crawley, Junior Mannies and Pat Aikman. Through the years, the IBCA has awarded more than $485,000 in scholarships to Indiana students.
"I would like to congratulate you for being selected as a recipient," IBCA executive director Steve Witty wrote in informing winners of the various selections. "... Thanks for your contributions to Indiana high school basketball, and best of luck as you move on to the college of your choice."
Kristen Dickman of Zionsville, Shelby Morphew of Brownsburg, Adam Sander of Jasper and Heather Uhl of Corydon Central were awarded 2011 Junior Mannies Scholarships. Mannies Scholarships are presented to students who have a physical handicap but have contributed to their respective school's athletic program.
Mannies won 311 games as the boys basketball coach at Elwood, Mississinewa, Delphi and other schools. He served as the IBCA Job Placement Director from 1977-83.
A total of 36 Crawley Scholarships were presented to a variety of boys players (15), girls players (17), cheerleaders (two) and student managers (two). Criteria for the Crawley Scholarship includes achievement in basketball, achievement in academics, participation in extracurricular activities and service to one's school and community. A list of the 2011 winners is below.
Crawley was a former four-time boys basketball state championship coach -- two with the Washington Hatchets and two with the Lafayette Jeff Bronchos -- who amassed 644 career wins. He later became the first executive director of the IBCA.
"These are deserving young people who help make coaching a great profession," Witty said of all the winners.
Last month, Kyle Bradburn of Huntington North and Rachelle Kessie of Whitko were named winners of the inaugural Aikman Scholarships, named for the former Indiana All-Star game director and former IBCA Coordinator of Special Projects.
Criteria for the Aikman Scholarship include achievements and contributions in basketball, scholastic achievement, extra-curricular activities, and service to school and community. Also, those considered for the Aikman Scholarship are students who plan to enter the fields of journalism, sports management, athletic training or physical therapy.
