The Mules Booster Club has named Kiley Bess and Tyler Cline of Poplar Bluff High School the November Athletes of the Month, presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors. 

Tyler, a senior basketball player, averages 13 points, four rebounds, three steals and two assists per game. He won MVP for the game at the Norm Stewart Classic held Saturday, Dec. 1, in Columbia. His grade point average was 10.7 for the first quarter of the school year, and 9.6 overall. 

“Tyler has shown to be a young man of character, intelligence and talent,” his coach William Durden said. “Tyler is a relentless competitor and hard worker on the court and in the classroom. He displays the work ethic and leadership that every coach hopes for from his players. He does all of the little things to get the job done.” 

Kiley, a junior basketball player, averaged 14.5 points and 7.2 rebounds per game during the recent SEMO Conference Tournament. She has already received six full-ride scholarship offers to National Collegiate Athletic Association Division 1 educational institutions. She is currently ranked 19th in her class with an 11.179 GPA. 

“Kiley is growing into a great leader on and off the floor,” her coach John David Pattillo stated.
