What he did: Over the Mariners' past five games - four of which were wins - Miksovsky has averaged 17.0 points per game. That run was highlighted by a season-high 25 points Dec. 27 in a win over Sultan at the Cloud 9 Sports Lynden Christmas Classic at Lynden Christian. A day later, he hit a go-ahead 3-pointer to punctuate a team-high 18 points, nine rebounds, four assists and five steals to help the Mariners beat Cashmere. On Wednesday, Jan. 2, he scored 10 against Delta Secondary. He is second on the team with 12.8 points per game.
Coach's quote: "Evan, he is the glue for this team. He's the guy we rely on for a lot of things. Other guys might lead us in scoring on certain nights, but he's still scoring in double figures and collecting rebounds, steals, assists, tips - all those little things that help us be successful." - A.J. LaBree
Events: Breaststroke and butterfly
What he did: Travers won the 100 breaststroke in a Northwest Conference dual meet against Sehome on Thursday, Jan. 3, with a time of 1 minute, 15.35 seconds. He also swam a 1:09.49 in the 100 butterfly at the meet - the first time he'd broken 1 minute, 10 seconds in the event. Both times were automatic qualifying marks for the Class 2A District 1/2 meet next month in Anacortes.
Coach's quote: "Gabe brings a lot of enthusiasm to our team. His efforts have already earned him three automatic district qualifying times, - the third one being in the 200 individual medley." - Jeff Anderson
