Here we are. The end of the year has come. The championship trophies have been fought for. No more practices. No more games.
Just one last thing to do: select our athletes of the year for 2008-2009.
Typically we have chosen 1-2 athletes from each zone around the Seattle area (North, East, City, South) as our nominees. Then we chose one that stands above the rest as our final athletes of the year.
The criteria is simple: the athletes must at least excel at two sports or stand out at three. State championships and Star Times teams are a good place to start.
Last year our picks were Jackson’s Kristi Kingma (soccer, basketball, track) and O’Dea’s Johri Fogerson (football, basketball, track).
How about this year? Help us out. Who are some the area’s best athletes that stand out in multiple sports?
