The Mules Booster Club has named Katherine Rose Pattillo and Luke Becker of Poplar Bluff High School the March Athletes of the Month, presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors.

Katherine, a senior basketball player, averaged 5.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game, with an assist to turnover ratio of 4.63. She was 36.5 percent in the three-point range, and 87.5 from the foul line. Katherine was named to the All-District team for two years, and was an honorable mention at SEMO All-Conference this past season. In the classroom, she maintained an 11.34/11 grade point average. 

“Katie has been our floor leader the past few years and has really played strong through this year’s conference and post seasons,” said John David Pattillo, her coach. “She played through pain and injury all year that has ended her athletic career.”

Luke, also a senior basketball player, averaged 7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. He was a three-year letterman during his four years of basketball, and was named to the All-District team. In the classroom, he earned a 9.71 cumulative GPA. 

“Luke is a joy to be around. He works hard and has a great attitude,” said William Durden, his coach. “The growth he has made as a student and athlete over the last four years has been fun to watch.”
