Athletes of the Week for 2-26

Time now for our final Athletes of the Week for the winter sports season. We finish up with the girls. We’ll be back with our spring Athletes of the Week March 24 for the week of March 26.

MOUNT SI – The Wildcat gymnastics team finished up the season this past Friday and Saturday with a strong showing, finishing third overall in the 1A/2A/3A meet, matching last year’s finish. Among the keys to that was junior Hailey Johnson, who along with previous winter AotW Jenn Rogers, made it into the individual event finals competition on Saturday after an excellent showing Friday. Johnson competed in the vault event in the Saturday finals and had a solid 8.7 score in that event. Johnson and Rogers will lead Mount Si’s program into 2014-15 as it faces a much tougher Kingco 4A conference.

CEDARCREST – CHS’ girls’ hoops program finished 17-5 this season, and we’ve rewarded five members of that team – Susan Kenney, Megan Ditore, Kathryn Smith, Lacey Deming and Kalee Fowler – recognition in this segment throughout the season. Our last recognition, however, goes to a pair of players who not only delivered on the floor, but deliver in the classroom as well. Juniors LuAnn Townley and Avery Rich were both fixtures for the Red Wolves this season, contributing wherever they could both offensively and defensively. But both of them are also getting it done in class as well. The Red Wolves have several players who are doing well academically, earning grade point averages of above 3.0 coming into this recently completed season. Townley and Rich, though, both came into the 2013-14 campaign with perfect 4.0 GPA’s. So we offer Townley and Rich our recognition today for their efforts on and off the field.
