TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - WIBW had 33 Scholar Athletes recognized Wednesday night and two winners were selected to receive a scholarship.

Mallory High from Seaman and Brooklyn Jones from Lebo each won a $2,500 scholarship from Kaw Valley Bank and Cable Dahmer.

“Doing a lot really makes the down time a lot more freeing, so I feel like I’m working to have those off days. It’s worth it,” High said.

”We’ve had a lot of accomplishments, so I think the state tournaments and playing with my family and friends was the best part,” Jones said.

Mallory will head to Baker University and study nursing while Jones will head to Kansas State to study Health Sciences/Pre-Optometry.
