Saks' Monday and Bush Make History, Ink Swimming Scholarships
In front of a large crowd with friends and family, Mikey Monday and Elon Bush became the first athletes in Calhoun County to sign a college scholarship for swimming. The Saks High School seniors inked their national letters of intent this afternoon. Monday is headed to University of the Cumberlands in Kentucky and Bush will swim at Lindenwood University in Belleville, Illinois. Perhaps the most impressive thing about Bush and Monday is their passion for swimming was realized just 11 months ago. Both have worked extremely hard putting in practice in the water before and after school as well as weight-training and a strict diet. With the first two college swimmers in the books, there’s excitement for more in the future.
