Big news about Chief Sealth International High School athletes! First, three seniors have signed for college, and a ceremony preceded last night’s fall-sports banquet – the report is from Colin Slingsby:
November 8th was the early National Letter of Intent (NLI) signing day for seniors across the country. Chief Sealth International High School celebrated three senior student-athletes on their signing day prior to the fall sports banquet. In a high school sports climate where many elite athletes transfer schools, these three seniors proved that great results can be attained by staying loyal to their community; all three attended the complete pathway of Denny International Middle School and Chief Sealth International High School, and last night were able to proudly announce their collegiate destinations.
Elijah Jackson signed his NLI to play basketball at Eastern Washington University. Throughout high school, Elijah has been a two sport athlete excelling in both track and basketball. Elijah placed in the top 8 in three events in the state track meet last spring. He was voted all-league honorable mention in the last basketball season.
Quinn Wiley signed her NLI to run track at San Diego State University. Also a four year varsity soccer player, Quinn has been a standout on the Chief Sealth track team for four years, qualifying for state both in relays and individual events. She’s also been a regional qualifier as a participant in her elite summer track program.
Mackenna Cameron signed her NLI to join the women’s crew team at the University of Washington, a perennial national contender in crew. Mackenna came to the sport late, and through participating in the summer rowing program at Green Lake found her unique talent for the sport.
Congratulations to these three outstanding Chief Sealth student-athletes!
Also last night, Nicole Sipila from the Chief Sealth PTSA reports, individual seniors were honored:
