AAA Student-Athletes Honored
Auburn Adventist Academy student-athletes recognized for outstanding performance in the SeaTac league
With another season of fall sports complete in the SeaTac 1B league, Auburn Adventist Academy (AAA) represented well for their school, bringing in ten all league members and one team sportsmanship award.
The Falcons, who compete independently in the SeaTac 1B league, have already brought much success to the schools athletics program. Five Falcon student-athletes were placed on 1st
team, five student-athletes were placed on 2nd
team, one student-athlete received honorable mention, and one team received the Team Sportsmanship award.
Boys soccer was awarded six all league votes after they won the SeaTac 1B League Tournament. Edwin Salvador and Jonathan Tejel were named to the 1st
team. Braeden Krall, Voldi Kapongo, Chris Park, and Derek Slavens were named to the 2nd
team. “I am very proud for our school and how these gentlemen represented AAA throughout the season,” says Logan Adams, athletic director at AAA. “They are all good character guys and that’s what we want in our athletic program”.
Cross Country earned 1st
team honors. Nathan Yeagley and Namoi Sosa-Morales were named to the 1st
team and Bradley Hammond was named to the 2nd
team. Additionally, the cross country team received the Team Sportsmanship Award. Adams is very happy with how the season unfolded. “Coach McNamara did an outstanding job this season preparing our student-athletes to compete at a high level. I am proud our students-athletes were recognized for all their dedication and commitment; they earned every bit.”
Senior, Emma Morgan, earned honorable mention and it was well deserved. Although the season had many ups and downs, Emma provided stability for the younger student-athletes on the team. “I am very proud of the way Emma handled this season,” says Adams. “She is a leader and she provided reliability and a “have fun” mentality throughout the entire season.”
After much success for AAA student-athletes in the fall sports season, Adams hopes this trend continues into the winter sports season. “Our student-athletes are all high character individuals and they do an excellent job of representing God, their school, families, and the athletic department. I am very proud of our coaches for providing positive influences to all of our student-athletes.”
