Lake Washington High’s football team and head coach Andy Arena recently received a 2018 Team Sportsmanship Award from the Pacific Northwest Officials Football Association.

The Kangs were one of two teams to receive the award, and they were nominated for their performance in last year’s Sept. 28 game against Bellevue, according to a May 15 letter from the association. One LW player who best exemplifies sportsmanship will receive a $1,000 scholarship toward their college education, the letter reads.

LW finished 3-2 in 2A/3A KingCo last season and won its second straight league title.

The Kangs notched the school’s first football playoff victory since 2003 with a 17-0 victory over Shorewood to make the 3A state football playoffs round of 16. The team won four of its last five games of the season.

The team will receive a plaque to be displayed in the school’s trophy case.
