Coach's quote: "Several athletes who win athlete of the week win this nomination because of the amount of points they have scored in a given week. However, Devin has been one of our most consistent players this season - not only scoring points, but she is one of our leading rebounders on our team (at 5-foot-6) and is consistently bringing down four to five rebounds a game as well as getting her hands on passes, creating turnovers and steals. Scoring is one aspect of the game. However, Devin has done a tremendous job in competing in all aspects of the game, not just offensively, but in my mind the most important aspect - defense." -Kim Kirk
Position: Sprint free, IM, fly
What he did: Grambo has put together a dominant season for coach Don Helling's Mariners and arguably saved his best for last while helping Sehome last week clinch its 10th straight Northwest Conference championship with a 93-92 win against Squalicum and a 92-90 victory against Anacortes. Grambo won all the events he entered and also heavily factored into Sehome's relays. He is ranked No. 3 in the state in the 50 free and is also ranked in the 100 fly, 100 free and 200 IM.
Coach's quote: "Isaiah is a hard worker and an inspirational team captain. His determination to be the best and help the team reach our season goals is unflagging." -Don Helling
