CONGRATULATIONS! West Seattle High School athletes celebrate National Signing Day

As athletic director Corey Sorenson (above left) noted while these four West Seattle High School seniors celebrated their college commitments on National Signing Day, all have made school history: Ally Veenhuizen with the first WSHS girls’ soccer team to go to state:

She’ll play at Seattle Pacific University.

Chloe Cunliffe, track and field athlete, is a state recordholder:

She’s headed for Washington State University, as is Grace Sarver:

Grace and her basketball teammates finished third in the state last year – among them, Kelsey Lenzie:

Kelsey will play at University of Portland.

P.S. The center chair at the table in our top photo was in honor of another Wildcat senior who’s college-bound, Abdullahi Mohamed, who’ll play basketball at Eastern Washington University.

    Thank Title Nine ladies.  It made sure that women had the same access to athletic opportunities as men at any university that received federal funds.  I was at WSU in the 70s when it was implemented.  The “men’s” weight room suddenly became the weight room for everyone.   Your athletic success carries on this important reality; women and men should have equal opportunities in everything.  Go Cougars and Go women!  Yeah! WSU and Pullman will change your life forever; for the better.  Mark Ufkes (WSU 77, 85, 87)
