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.
Corey Kispert, a Sophomore, and Daylee Hanson, a Senior, from King's High School were nominated by a community member and selected by WIAA staff as Athletes of the Week for achievements in Basketball.
Kispert scored 32 of the Knights’ 51 points, in a 51-41 victory over Vashon Island last week’s 1A state regional game.
Hanson supplied 12 points, seven rebounds, and three steals as the Knights earned its sixth-consecutive state berth with a win over Bellevue Christian.
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.
