A pair of seniors from the Mountlake Terrace Hawks cross country team are being featured on the October MTHS Athlete Highlights posters now being displayed in the area.
Jessica Ong and Nick Leidig were chosen by Terrace cross country Coach Todd Weber for the honor.
“Jessica is truly one of the greatest and toughest competitors I have had in my twenty years of coaching cross country,” Weber said. “She has played a big part in making the Terrace girls cross country one of the best programs in the state. Jessica is an outstanding student, a great teammate and an all-around wonderful young lady.”
Weber also commented on Leidig’s cross country talent.
“Nick is one of the few cross country athletes I have known who has lettered all four years,” Weber said. “He is one of the most committed runners this program has ever seen with legendary mileage runners that rank up there with former standout teammate Jack Pierce. Nick is a great student and tremendous leader and one of the most caring people I know.”
The monthly MTHS Athlete Highlights posters are presented by the school’s Sports Booster Club; for more information on the group, click www.eteam.com/mthssportsboosterclub.
