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.
Ronnie Gary, 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 & Field.
Gary competed at the Shoreline Invitational on 4/30, an event with over 1,000 athletes. He won the high jump with a mark of 6¹10². Currently, that is tied for third in all-classifications and a school record.
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.
