This past week’s Wetherington Chiropractic Clinic Athletes of the week for May 17, 2014 were the Savannah Christian Preparatory school standout athlete senior Chandler Ewaldsen and Benedictine Military School multi-sport athlete junior Brad Stewart. Each has respectively just won the biggest awards given out to local prep athletes in Savannah Georgia, the Hollis Stacy Award and the Ashley Dearing Award.
Savannah Christian’s senior Chandler Ewaldsen becomes the third athlete to win the Hollis Stacy Award back to back and the first since Savannah Country Day’s Lizzie Sprague in 2003 and 2004. The award is given to the most versatile female student-athlete in Chatham County. The athlete must have participated in three varsity sports during the school year.
Benedictine Military School’s junior Brad Stewart is the 61st Ashley Dearing Award winner. The Dearing Award is given out to the most versatile male student-athlete in Chatham County annually. Brad is a standout athlete in football, basketball, and baseball for the Cadets. He is only the sixth junior to win the award.
Besides winning the Dearing Award Brad has been recognized as an All-Region selection in all three sports and is a two-time All-State selection in football, one honorable mention and one-second team. Brad has been named to all the Savannah Morning News All-City teams. Brad has been chosen a first-team selection in football two times, a first-team selection in baseball last year and a second-team pick in basketball this year. As of right now Brad has been offered football scholarships to the U.S. Military Academy and Marshall University. These two outstanding student-athletes deserve a big congratulation by all.
