Leaving an Athenian Legacy
Every athlete wants their senior season to be their best and go out on top. For Crawfordsville ace Cale Coursey, it’s safe to say he was able to do just that. After suffering a season-ending injury last season, Coursey was forced to watch from the dugout as his Athenians missed the presence of one of their top players. From the moment he was cleared last summer until now, Coursey has been using last season as added motivation and drive. It resulted in a special senior season, that while ended sooner than most Athenian fans wanted, was still one to remember.
