Each week throughout the school year, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) recognizes twelve varsity athletes, a male and a female from each of the six classifications, who exhibited an outstanding performance for the previous week.
Grant Heisey, a Senior from Shorecrest High School, was nominated by a community member and selected by WIAA staff as one of the Athletes of the Week for achievements in Swim and Dive.
Heisey won the 200-yard freestyle, the 100 backstroke, and was a part of a winning relay team in dual meet wins over Archbishop Murphy and Anacortes.
In recognition of their accomplishment, each Athlete of the Week winner receives a congratulatory letter from WIAA Executive Director, Mike Colbrese, a commemorative WIAA State Athlete of the Week t-shirt, and a certificate. Winners are also posted to the WIAA website.
