State Farm student athlete of the week Korry Davis

We are excited to announce our State Farm student athlete of the week Korry Davis. Korry is a senior at Butler and a member of the cross country team. Korry was nominated by Butler’s athletic director Jake Duvall. Korry has had an amazing season in cross country and placed 7th at districts on Saturday. She will compete at state in Columbia, Missouri on Friday. Coach Duvall stated “Korry is a caring and generous student who is friendly to everyone she meets”.

Korry not all excels on the course but also in the classroom. She has maintained good grades throughout high school and plans on attending college and majoring in accounting after graduation.

When we asked Korry what it takes to become an elite athlete and leader she stated “it takes always having a positive attitude and giving 100% at every practice”. When we asked her what she has learned from cross country that she can apply to life later she stated “to never give up, no matter how much pain you are in or how hard it gets.

The person next to you is experiencing the same thing, and you just have to keep going.” We wish Korry the best of luck at state on Friday. Congrats Korry!!
