Zach Miller, the No. 1 player with the White River High School boys golf program, was honored as an Athlete of the Week by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association.
Miller, a freshman, was chosen for the week of Oct. 20-26.
Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA recognizes varsity athletes who have an outstanding performance during the previous week. All varsity level students in good academic standing at their schools are eligible to receive the Athlete of the Week Award.
Miller has been a standout golfer in youth circles, currently ranked No. 70 in the world for members of the graduating class of 2023. He has carried his winning ways to the varsity high school level. He took medalist honors in every South Puget Sound League 2A match during the regular season. At the league tournament he dominated the field, opening with a round of 70 and adding a 72 on the tourney’s second day. His 144 total was 19 strokes better than the second-place finishers and qualified Miller for the Class 2A state tournament in the spring.
