Beaven nets top award from IHSAA

After the big game, Lady Panther senior Dana Beaven was announced as the winner of the Patricia L. Roy Mental Attitude Award from the IHSAA, which awards a $1,000 scholarship to Corydon Central in Beaven’s name.
Beaven led CCHS to its first state finals berth, averaging 17.3 points and 7 rebounds this season.
Beaven has been selected to participate in the Reebok North/South All-Star Game, and she is a Hoosier Basketball Magazine first-team all-state and Top 40 Workout participant. The Mid-Southern Conference MVP and Indiana High School Guide ‘Tremendous 26’ selection was a Junior All-Star in 2004. She is a three-time team MVP who helped her 2004 Corydon Central squad to the regional finals. Beaven is a McDonald’s All-America candidate and two-time ‘Athlete of the Year’ for the Panthers. She also helped her AAU team qualify for the Nationals in 2004.
‘She’s all those things, but more importantly, she’s an exceptional person,’ Uhl said.
Earlier this season, Beaven signed to play basketball at Bellarmine University in Louisville.
Beaven is the daughter of Tony and Kris Beaven of Corydon, and is the second athlete from Harrison County to be honored with a Mental Attitude Award this athletic season.
North Harrison’s Ryan Byrne won in cross country in the fall.
