Brett Johnson, a Senior, from Anacortes High School was nominated by a community member and selected by Washington Interscholastic Activities Association staff as one of the Athletes of the Week for achievements in Swim & Dive.

Johnson won a pair of events in last week’s meet against Burlington-Edison, and sealed the team victory. He won the 200 individual medley in 2:14.02 and the 100 backstroke in 1:00.33.

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 at www.wiaa.com

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.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association is a private, non-profit service organization made up of 800 member high schools and middle level schools from every corner of the state. The WIAA provides the structure, accountability and consistency through rules and regulations for more than 180,000 high school and middle level students to participate in five different activity and sixteen athletics programs. The WIAA organizes and oversees more than 120 State Championships for those programs.
