The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) announced its Athlete of the Week winners for Week 3 (Sept. 15-21), Wednesday.
Wapato Junior Michael Martinez picked up the honor in Varsity Football.
Martinez put up five touchdowns and over 300 rushing yards last week in the Wolves' game versus the Cashmere Bulldogs.
Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA recognizes varsity athletes who exhibited an outstanding performance for the previous week (based off of nominations). All varsity level students in good academic standing at their schools are eligible to receive the WIAA/Wendy's Athlete of the Week Award. Students may win the award once during any given academic year.
Nominations are open to athletic administrators, coaches, fans and members of the media, with a weekly deadline of Tuesday at noon PT.
