Southridge Community; Others Mourn Loss Of “Vibrant Young Lady!”

Lexi Mattingly

Huntingburg (NNDC) – The staff of NewsNow Dubois County wishes to express our deepest sympathies to the family of Lexi Mattingly.

The 16-year old Southridge High School sophomore passed away Thursday from complications of a heart condition.

Lexi played basketball and tennis for the Raiders.  The Lady Raiders tennis team has worn “Luv for Lexi” T-shirts after her condition hospitalized her in March.  She had recovered to be courtside with her teammates as recently as this week.

Southridge Athletic Director Brett Bardwell said Lexi was a “wonderful vibrant young lady.”

He says the pain of Lexi’s passing has been eased by what he calls the tremendous outpouring from not only people locally, but from many across the region as well.

Bardwell said, “That certainly helps during this very difficult time for the Mattingly family and the Southridge community.”

Lexi was the daughter of Gene and Traci Mattingly of Holland.  Her father is an assistant coach for the Raiders baseball team.

Back on April 12th, the Raiders baseball team played a game at Sellersburg.  That night, the Silver Creek baseball team gave Lexi’s dad an autographed baseball and a T-shirt for her with wishes for a speedy recovery after she was hospitalized last month.

Thursday evening, after learning Lexi had passed away, Tyler Wheeler, a member of the Dragons baseball team and who’s dad is the team’s pitching coach, stepped to the plate in a game at South Central High School; took his bat and marked a small “L” in the batters box for Lexi!  Two pitches later, Tyler hit his first career high school home run!

Below is the Facebook post from Silver Creek High School to the Mattingly family following Lexi’s passing including home video of Wheeler hitting his home run for Lexi!
