Squalicum junior Tyler Hughes has been selected an Athlete of the Week by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association for last week, according to a press release on Thursday, March 24.

Hughes scored two goals in the Storm’s 5-1 non-league win over Sedro-Woolley on Saturday, March 19, and assisted on a third on a corner kick in the 13th minute.

“Tyler played with a lot of energy,” Squalicum coach Joe McAuliffe said after the game.

Hughes is the second Squalicum student-athlete to win the award this school year, joining Kim Dorr after she helped the Storm girls’ soccer team to a Class 2A state title in November.
