Our final Athletes of the Week for winter sports…….

Athletes of the Week this morning and we finish up our winter selections with girls. We’ll have our first spring selections in probably three weeks or so, so look for those here.

MOUNT SI – Gymnastics rounds it out for the winter with Tylor Zwiefelhofer joining previous AotW’s Sidney Aspinall and Shelby Johnson in qualifying for state at the Wes-King bi-district meet this past weekend in Bellevue. Zwiefelhofer earned trips to state in bars and beam while Aspinall will compete on bars and floor and Johnson made it four for four in state trips in her high school career, on the vault. Full results aren’t available, but coach Kelly Loranger gave us the good news about all three, who are sharing the recognition even though both Aspinall and Johnson earned it earlier in the season.

“I’m very proud of them,” said Loranger by email. “Not only are they incredible athletes, but they all are Running Start students (they attend Bellevue College and take classes there part of the day and receive Mount Si High School credits on top of college credits in lieu of attending class at MSHS). Together they will represent every event. The fact Shelby made it to state on vault every year shows her strength and consistency. Sidney was able to overcome an injury in January and came back strong. Tylor didn’t let nerves get the best of her and was solid and confident on beam.”

The state event is this weekend at Sammamish High School in Bellevue.

CEDARCREST – We round out the girls with one last trip to the basketball floor. Ava Erhardt gave it her all last Friday night, scoring 22 points for the Red Wolves in a 53-48 season-ending playoff loss in the Northwest 2A District tournament to Sammamish in Bellevue. Erhardt is one of several sophomores who will be worth keeping an eye on this offseason as CHS looks to build off what was a relatively successful 12-10 campaign in their first go-round in Wesco in over 20 years. She, along with fellow sophomores Rose Carlson, Sidra Griffin and others, will aim to improve on this mark next season, and will have back teammate Jaylin Yowell, who was out much of the season with a knee injury.
