The Mules Booster Club has named Salah McCormack and Gavyn Hays of Poplar Bluff High School the September Athletes of the Month, presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors.

Gavyn, a senior football player, had 18 carries, 152 yards, 3 touchdowns, 8.4 yards per carry and 1 pass reception for 9 yards during this season’s game against Sikeston.

Gavyn is a “great team leader" and "extremely hard-working,” said his coach, David Sievers, noting that the student-athlete also was a state qualifier for Mules Wrestling last year.

Salah, a cross country runner, finished as Poplar Bluff’s top female runner for most of the 2020 season, and was a medalist at the Jackson Invitational.

“We can always count on her to run to her ability at any given course,” said her coach, Elizabeth Lewis, adding that Salah has run for the school system since seventh grade. “As Salah has grown older, she is developing more confidence as a runner.”
