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.
Devan Kirk, a Senior, from Shorewood 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.
Kirk ran the 400m in a school record time of 49.83, and finished the day anchoring the 4x400m relay with a split of 48.9.
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.
