Wheeler, Jensen highlighted as MTHS June athletes


Mountlake Terrace High School seniors Kayla Wheeler and Matt Jenson have been selected to appear on the June Athlete Highlights poster displayed at area businesses and organizations.

Wheeler is a member of the Terrace robotics team, a Paralympics swimmer and recipient of a MTHS letterman’s jacket presented by the Sports Booster Club. She has also been selected to speak at the MTHS Class of 2014 commencement on June 12.

“Kayla has been a powerful force in the leadership and management of FIRST Robotic’s Team 1778: CHILLOUT,” said MTHS technology instructor James Wilson. “She found her place as a team captain, leading project management, and will be back next year as a mentor. Kayla’s focus, confidence and intelligence as a leader has created a model for future leaders to follow in her wake.”

Jenson was a four-year letterman-qualified member of the Terrace boys golf team, serving as team captain for the past two season. MTHS golf coach Tom Gorney called Jenson a “great student athlete,” who during his senior year was “number one player on the team, team captain, first team All-Wesco, second place in the 3A Wesco tournament, fourth place in the district tournament and a State participant.”

The MTHS Athlete Highlights posters are a publication of the school’s Sports Booster Club.
