The Seattle Seahawks, CenturyLink and KIRO Radio have chosen Rosalie Fish, a senior cross country runner at Muckleshoot Tribal School, as the CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week.
Fish will be recognized at CenturyLink Field during the Nov. 15 game against the Green Bay Packers.
Fish was selected Athlete of the Week based on her leadership through athletics, academics and community action. Fish is team captain of cross country, track and cheer at school.
She is currently ranked third in the state in her cross country division. Fish took second at the 1B/2B district meet at Onalaska last Saturday, covering the 5,000-meter (3.1-mile) distance in a personal-best 18 minutes, 14.5 seconds. She captured the Sea-Tac League championship at Bremerton on Oct. 18, and was named the girls’ league MVP.
She chosen as a WIAA/Wendy’s Athlete of the Week winner for Oct. 14-20.
Fish took the Auburn All-City meet title on Oct. 10 with a personal-best 19:27.60 at Isaac Evans Park.
This past spring in track and field, she won the 1B state championship in the mile run and took second place in the two-mile race.
As a Running Start student, Fish is scheduled to graduate with an associate of the arts degree and is also working to earn her private pilot license. She dedicates much of her community and educational efforts to embracing her Native American heritage. She is the Native American Club president at her school.
In recent summers, she participated in a pre-collegiate writing course at Stanford University, where she had the opportunity to teach other students about Native American traditions through literature. Fish is also a student representative for the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, a nonprofit organization focused on increasing the representation of Native Americans in STEM education. After college, she aspires to pursue a career in aviation.
Each student athlete will be recognized at his or her school in front of families, peers and teachers, as well as at a Seahawks game. Each winner will also receive a $1,000 grant to their school’s athletic department from the Seahawks along with tickets and sideline passes to a Seahawks game, a customized football and 2018 Seahawks jersey. A total of $10,000 will be awarded to high schools over the course of the season.
