Valley’s Moriarty wins Cato Memorial Scholarship


Sports Editor, RTC

Molly Moriarty

The IHSAA has awarded Tippecanoe Valley’s Molly Moriarty a C. Eugene Cato Memorial Scholarship.

Moriarty will receive a $2,500 scholarship and be recognized at the Thomas A. Brady Sports Achievement Awards at Lucas Oil Stadium on April 19.

“These well-rounded, positive role models have demonstrated excellence in academics, school and community involvement, character, sportsmanship and citizenship,” the IHSAA said in a statement.

Moriarty is one of 12 seniors statewide to win the scholarship. The IHSAA said they received “nearly 100” completed applications.

In addition to being a letterwinning senior athlete at an IHSAA member school, candidates also had to be nominated by the principal or athletic director, carry a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and have no violations of the school’s athletic code of conduct.

An eight-person panel, which included IHSAA Commissioner Paul Neidig and IHSAA Commissioner Emeritus Bobby Cox, decided upon the final recipients.

The IHSAA wrote the following biography of Moriarty in a statement:

“Tippecanoe Valley senior Molly Moriarty is a 12-time varsity letter winner, competing in golf and softball in each of her four years as a Viking, while earning two letters in both basketball and track and field. Molly served as team captain of her golf, basketball and softball team this year. She has earned numerous Academic All-Conference awards and has been named All-Conference in golf and softball and All-State in softball. In the classroom, Molly ranks first in her class of 133 students, posting a 4.19 weighted GPA. She is a member of Tippecanoe Valley’s National Honor Society, Academic Honors Committee, Student Council, and Peer Facilitators. She also participates in Unified Bowling, which joins student-athletes with and without intellectual disabilities and allows them to compete together. Molly has volunteered her time to numerous community outreach events and works as an umpire for the youth softball and baseball leagues in her community. Molly will attend Purdue University in the fall.”
