Friday Harbor High School athletes have wrapped up the spring sports season, but the wins keep coming.
Students and families gathered at the Friday Harbor High School Turnbull Gym on Tuesday, June 5 to present spring teams and individual athletes with awards. Seniors were also given flowers and their parents joined them in warm embraces to honor their final year of athletics.
Four spring sports teams were recognized for excellent collective GPAs: the boys golf team with 3.7; the girls softball team with 3.42; girls tennis with 3.46; and girls track with 3.65.
“Education-based athletics is pretty important to us,” said Friday Harbor High School Athletic Director Rod Turnbull. “A lot of people support and work for that – teachers, parents, students.”
The Wolverines baseball team and softball team both ended the season with 11-1 records in their leagues. This was the fourth year in a row for the softball team to go to state and Ava Hoffman was awarded Most Valuable Player in the Northwest 2B League.
Friday Harbor’s Rich Warren also won baseball coach of the year in the team’s league.
Individual track team members, who placed in the top 16 amongst 59 schools in the 2B League, competed at the state level and were honored at the event. Turnbull recognized the success in reaching the state tournament.
“Top 16 out of the state, that’s a pretty great accomplishment in and of itself,” he said.
