The Mountlake Terrace High School June Athletes of the Month are Sarah Smith, member of the cheer squad, and Avery Fowble, member of the track and field team. Look for their photos and coach’s comments on posters around town this month.
Cheer: Sarah Smith, Junior
“I choose Sarah for this honor,” said Coach Jessica Bos. “She is starting her second year as a cheerleader and I am so excited to have her back again. She is my most experienced flyer and is always practicing to improve current skills as well as learn new ones.”
“Sarah adds such a fun attitude to every practice and keeps the rest of the squad laughing,” Bos added. “We are hoping to compete this year, and Sarah has competitive experience. She knows how much time and dedication it takes so I know I can count on her to guide the squad through the competition world.”
Track & Field: Avery Fowble, Senior
“Avery Fowble, what a kid,” said Coach Russ Vincent. “”Would do anything we ask him to. He ran the 400, 800, 1600, 3200 and the 300 hurdles. He even made it to the Wesco Championships and ran his lifetime best in the 300 by 1.5 seconds.”
“Avery did not score much in his career but was always there. This year, too, he had to battle from being sick which kept him from turning out on time. What a kid!”
