The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association honored Sumner High’s Cody Tanneberg with one of its Athlete of the Week awards.

Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA recognizes varsity athletes who exhibited an outstanding performance for the previous week. Tanneberg was honored for the week of Jan. 6-12 and the announcement was made Jan. 16.

During his highlight-reel week, the Spartan standout first led his team of a victory over Puyallup by scoring 24 points while also contributing six rebounds and three steals. As an encore, the senior captain helped his team beat Curtis, scoring 26 points, grabbing six rebounds and coming up with three steals.
