Last week, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association named Sumner senior Rachel Stowell as one of their Athletes of the Week.

“Stowell scored the Spartans’ winning goal in the second overtime of their match last week,” according to the WIAA’s announcement.

Stowell along with the  11 other winners received a congratulatory letter, Athlete of the Week shirt and a certificate.

Stowell has been starting for Sumner all four years of her high school career.

“She doesn’t get a lot of recognition as an outside back but consistently does her job, works hard and is part of a defense that has given up only 15 goals in four years,” Sumner coach Robi Turley said.

The Spartans lead the league 9-1-0 in conference play and 10-2-0 overall.
