Athletes of the Week for 5-29

Time now for our final item today, and that is our final Athletes of the Week for the 2012-13 school year. We will feature both boys and girls from both Mount Si and Cedarcrest High Schools in this week’s installment, and we will have our announcement of athletes of the year to close things out next week.

MOUNT SI BOYS – Senior Sam Isen had a strong showing in the 400m at the 3A state boys’ track and field meet in Tacoma last weekend, taking sixth place in that event and helping Mount Si’s boys tie for seventh overall as a team. Isen should be in good position to find himself running in college next spring, so we wish him luck on his post-secondary studies.

CEDARCREST BOYS – There were only three athletes representing CHS at the state track and field meet this past weekend, and one had not received recognition until now in this segment. Senior Luke Driscoll has been the top sprinter for the Red Wolves all spring and once again showed that in the state meet, with top-ten finishes in both the 200m and 400m races. Driscoll should be in position to make it on a college roster next spring, so we wish him all the best in his post-secondary pursuits.

MOUNT SI GIRLS – Junior Kristen Kasel closed out the season on a strong note at the state 3A girls’ track meet last weekend, taking 11th in the discus and beating out teammate, and previous AotW, Andrea Suttle. Kasel tossed the discus 98 feet, 10 inches, and that sets herself up well for a strong senior season next spring.

CEDARCREST GIRLS – Caitlin Brenner joined previous AotW Amanda Fairbanks as Red Wolves’ representatives at the state 2A girls’ golf tournament last Tuesday, and for that, we give Brenner our nod this week. While both ladies failed to make it to the second day, both Brenner and Fairbanks led CHS girls’ golf this spring. We hope to see their names this summer out on the WJGA tour, and perhaps on a college roster at some point down the line.
