Scholar-Athlete

The Greater Austin Sports Foundation is proud to announce its first three Scholar-Athlete of the Quarter honorees, Cameron O’Banan of Dripping Springs High School, Savannah Geurin of Leander High School, and Shelby Hayes of Cedar Park High School.

Cam was an all-around athletic star for the Tigers, playing football, running track, and leading his team to the 5A regional baseball final as a pitcher and outfielder. He has chosen to pursue a future in baseball at the University of Texas.

Savannah was a first team Class 5A All-State selection with a 25-1 record as a starter during her junior year, leading Leander HS to the regional final — and, all of this while maintaining close to a 4.0 GPA!

Shelby is a 6’2″ Junior who averaged just over 15 points and 8 rebounds per game while helping guide Cedar Park to their first Girls 5A State Basketball Championship this spring. She was similarly outstanding in the classroom, taking numerous honors courses and maintaining a 5.2 grade point average on a 5.0 scale!
