Seniors Mincheol Jung and Chaplyn Mack have been selected for this month’s Mountlake Terrace High School Athlete Highlights posters, on display now at local businesses and community centers.
Jung was singled out for the honor by Kate Trettevik, coach of the MTHS boys’ swim team.
“As team captain, he has done a great job motivating and encouraging the other swimmers both at practices and swim meets,” Trettevik said. “He’s great at leading the lanes during practice and keeping the other swimmers on task and motivated.”
Jung, whose favorite athlete is Olympic swimming 18-time gold medalist Michael Phelps, has been a member of the Hawk swim team each of his four years at the school.
Mack was selected for the tribute by MTHS wrestling Coach Grant Thompson.
“It is my honor to nominate Chaplyn for the Sports Booster Club’s Athlete Highlight Recognition,” he said.
“Chaplyn has accrued an impressive 13-1 overall record,” Thompson continued. “He consistently demonstrates an unrivaled work ethic and love for the sport of wrestling. He is a gifted athlete, exemplary student and all-around great guy.”
