Mount Si High School student-athletes Camryn Buck, Tova Barden, Alden Huschle, Parker Dumas, and Colton Swain were the center of attention on Wednesday, Feb. 3, as they signed their letters of intent for various colleges that offered them scholarships.

The five Mount Si High School student-athletes sat together as coaches Charlie Kinnune and Darren Brown spoke about the hard work and dedication the students put in to earn their scholarships.

“I’ve had four of the five in the classroom, they are great student-athletes,” Brown, head boys and girls soccer coach, said. “They put themselves in this position through hard work and dedication. It’s exciting for all of us at Mount Si to see these kids go on and take advantage of higher learning and competing at the next level.”

Jerry Maher, ASB advisor at Mount Si High School, said putting in hours of hard work isn’t the only thing that earned these students their scholarships.

Balancing their time around sports while succeeding in class was vital.

“I would just like to congratulate the parents and students for all their hard work. A lot of people see this and say ‘I wish I could be in that position,’ but don’t understand the amount of hours that these student-athletes have put in,” Maher said. “The ability that they have to balance school, family, friends and still excel at sports. It’s a testament to the hard work that they put in.”

Buck will be attending Hawaii Pacific for soccer, Barden is heading to New Mexico State University for equestrian, Huschle will attend Seattle U for baseball, Dumas play football for University of Wyoming, and Swain will be attending Eastern Washington University for football.
