Positively Promoting the Student Athlete Since 1992

The Centier Bank Performers of the Week are NorthWood sophomore golfer Cybil Stillson and Valparaiso senior quarterback C.J. Opperman.

This past Friday and Saturday, Stillson placed sixth at the IHSAA girls’ golf state finals held at Prairie View Golf Course in Carmel by shooting a two-day score of 149 (75-74). The Panthers also placed sixth overall behind state champion Homestead with a team score of 680.

Last Friday, Opperman completed 16-of-23 passes for 219 yards and led three fourth-quarter touchdown drives, helping the No. 2 (Class 5A) Vikings rally from an 18-point deficit for a memorable 29-28 victory over previously unbeaten and No. 6 (Class 6A) Merrillville. The win keeps Valparaiso unbeaten with a mark of 7-0 and in the driver’s seat for a third consecutive Duneland Athletic Conference championship.

The Centier Bank Performer of the Week is open to any male-female student athlete who participates in any IHSAA sanctioned sport and whose school is in the Centier Bank geographic area.
