Mount Baker senior Stephanie Soares was selected as an Athlete of the Week by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association last week.

Soares scored a game-high 18 points, pulled down nine rebounds and had six blocks in the Mountaineers’ season-opening 53-32 win over Nooksack Valley on Nov. 28. She followed that up by helping Mount Baker to a 57-43 win at Meridian on Saturday.

The Mountaineers play at Friday Harbor on Saturday before opening Northwest Conference play Tuesday when they host Blaine.
