Lake Washington High principal Christina Thomas presents Kang senior Brady Gockel with his certificate of recognition from the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association as the Student-Athlete of the Week for his achievements in track and field. He was one of 12 selected from all around the state. Gockel broke the LWHS school record in the javelin with a throw of 187 feet, eight inches (besting the previous record of 176-11). According to LWHS athletic director Rick O’Leary, “I was pleased to nominate Brady for this honor because he embodies the qualities we hope to develop in our student athletes: hard work, determination, resilience, and sportsmanship. When these qualities are present and nurtured by their coaches, the end result is success – in the classroom, in the athletic arena, and in life beyond our campus.” Courtesy photo
