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.
Will Smith, 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 3A Baseball.
Smith threw a two-hit, 15 strikeout game against Lynnwood last week. He tossed seven innings, allowing one walk in the 90 pitch outing.
In recognition of the 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.
The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association is a private, non-profit service organization made up of 800 member high schools and middle level schools from every corner of the state.
