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.
Riley Scocco, a Senior from Shorewood Christian High School, was nominated by a community member and selected by WIAA staff as one of the Athletes of the Week for achievements in Track and Field.
Scocco was awarded first place ribbons in the hammer and discus at the Lil' Norway Invitational in Poulsbo. She also received fourth in the shot put.
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.
