West Seattle runner Maddie Meyers up for ‘Sports Star of the Year’

She’s one of the fastest women in the state – and she’s still in high school. West Seattle resident Maddie Meyers is one of five nominees for “Female Sports Star of the Year” when the Seattle Sports Commission announces its annual awards next month. She runs for The Northwest School and is a national recordholder as well as winning four consecutive state titles in cross-country. But in addition to rooting for Maddie, you can also vote for her – the SSC is asking for public votes online. Maddie’s mom Kathy Meyers says, “There have been few high schoolers nominated for this award, and Maddie is really honored by this.” You can vote for her by going here (note, they ask for an e-mail address up front, but right over the final “cast vote” button, you can click to uncheck the box that would put you on a newsletter list). There are three other voting categories – Male and Professional Sports Stars of the Year and Sports Story of the Year. The winners will be announced at Benaroya Hall downtown on January 25th.

    Not to take away from Maddie’s accomplishments in anyway, but also wanted to mention that another one of the finalist in the contest, Julie Woodward, also lives in West Seattle with her family. Good luck to all!

      Had no idea. Thanks for mentioning it. Lots of West Seattleites doing great things but if nobody points it out to us … we can’t write about it … We’ll keep an eye on her accomplishments from hereon out! – TR
