Green River - Sophomore

Nominator Comments:

"Chelsea is one of two sophomores on the Green River team. She has a very high GPA.

She volunteers for Bonney Lake High School Cheer and Dance and Mountain View Middle School Dance Team. She is missing a leadership trip with Green River College to California to compete at the NWACs so the Gators will have a complete team. She thinks of others before herself."

Skagit Valley, Freshman

-- Event: 8 Kilometer Cross Country; Mark: 26:18 at NWAC NorthWest Region Championships

Nominator Comments: "Collin had a collegiate breakthrough performance by placing 4th at the NW regional meet. He was 14 seconds out of 2nd place against a field of Everett runners who beat him weeks earlier by over 1 1/2 minutes. Collin's resilient approach to a season that began uncertain speaks well for his determination and commitment to the sport. He had every reason to make excuses and quit the sport but chose to give it his best with the late transition of coach changes, program uncertainty and minimal meet opportunities. He has continued to improve each week and his NW Regional result speaks volumes in resilience and competitive spirit."
