RENTON — Warden senior Bailey Whitney was selected as a Washington Interscholastic Activities Association WIAA/Wendy’s Athlete of the Week winner for Week 6 (Sept. 30-Oct. 6), Wednesday.
Whitney provided a lot of scoring for the Cougars last week with seven goals and three assists in three games.
The senior midfielder has provided a scoring boost with all-state forward Aubree Skone out with an injury.
The Cougars sit atop the South Central Athletic Conference East at 6-0 in league and 10-0 overall.
Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA recognizes varsity athletes who exhibited an outstanding performance for the previous week (based off of nominations). All varsity level students in good academic standing at their schools are eligible to receive the WIAA/Wendy’s Athlete of the Week Award. Students may win the award once during any given academic year.
Nominations are open to athletic administrators, coaches, fans and members of the media, with a weekly deadline of Tuesday at noon Pacific Standard Time.
