Athletes of the Week for Jan. 5



School: Sehome

Sport: Basketball

Year: Senior

Position: Guard/forward

What he did: Evan Miksovsky is Sehome's only senior, and odds are coach AJ Labree couldn't ask for any better type of leadership. Miksovsky has helped Sehome put together a 7-3 overall record and a 1-1 Northwest conference mark. He's done it by contributing in all areas. During the Mariners' 80-53 win against Mount Baker on Monday, Dec. 30, he scored 12 points, had 11 rebounds, 11 assists, and seven steals. During Sehome's 62-61 overtime win against Anacortes on Thursday, Jan. 2, he scored 15 points, had 16 rebounds, six steals and five assists. He is averaging 12.6 points per game this season and scored a season-high 25 during Sehome's double overtime loss to Lynden.

Coach's quote: "What more could you want from a senior leader? Everyone knows he's our best player, but it's not because he's going to score 20 every night. He does everything. That's what makes him so tough." - AJ Labree


School: Ferndale

Sport: Basketball

Year: Junior

Position: Post

What she did: Honeycutt has helped Ferndale start fast with a 6-2 overall record and a 1-0 Northwest Conference mark. She is averaging 18 points per game and averaged 13 rebounds during the Golden Eagles' games last week. She has continued her dominance in the post again this year and scored a season-high 28 points during a 52-36 win against Anacortes back on Dec. 16.

Coach's quote: "She is an extremely hard worker that gives 100 percent in practice and games. Linsey has (a) work ethic that will help elevate our team to the next level." - Mike Ivy
