The coaches of the Mountlake Terrace High School wrestling team and boys swim team have selected junior Joey May and senior Daniil Oliferovskiy as the student athletes to be featured on the January Athlete Highlights poster, now up at local businesses around the city.
May was selected for the honor by MTHS boys swim team coach Kate Trettevik. “As one of the team captains, Joey is a hard worker and an excellent leader,” Trettevik said. “He strives to do his best at practices and meets, and also takes time to help his teammates as well.”
“Daniil is an extremely hard worker and dedicated student,” said Terrace wrestling coach Grant Thompson in his announcement of Oliferovskiy’s selection for the poster. “As a student, Daniil has achieved a GPA of just under 4.00; on the wrestling mat, he demonstrates a similar level of diligence.”
“He presents a strong work ethic, positive mental attitude, and a numb er of other redeeming qualities,” Thompson said of Oliferovskiy. “In terms of the future, Daniil is definitely going places in life. I feel very confident that he will have a positive influence on this world.”
