2015 0205 swimmer

An Anacortes High School athlete has been named one of 12 Athletes of the Week this week by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association.

Danny Schleh, a Senior at Anacortes High School, was nominated by a community member and selected by WIAA staff as Athletes of the Week for achievements in swimming and diving.

Schleh won two individual races in last week’s matchup with Sehome. He won the 200-yard freestyle in 1:51.19 and the 500 freestyle in 5:03.18.

Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA recognizes twelve varsity athletes, a male and a female from each of the six classifications, who exhibited an outstanding performance for the previous week.

In recognition of their accomplishment, each Athlete of the Week winner receives a congratulatory letter from WIAA Executive Director, Mike Colbrese, a commemorative WIAA State Athlete of the Week t-shirt, and a certificate. Winners are also posted to the WIAA website.
