Enumclaw High adds two to Athletic Hall of Fame

2002 graduates Ty Watterson and Alison Tubbs Mandi joined the roster last Friday.

Enumclaw High welcomed two new members into its Athletic Hall of Fame during a Friday night ceremony in Chuck Smith Gymnasium.

Added to the illustrious roster were wrestler Ty Watterson and distance runner Alison Tubbs Mandi. Watterson was a state champion as a senior and went on to garner All-American honors while competing for Oregon State University.

Mandi also was a state champion, earned prep All-American honors and went on to run at the University of Washington.

Each was a 2002 graduate of Enumclaw High, and both have family connections to the EHS Hall of Fame: Watterson’s sister Resa was a standout basketball player and a 2002 inductee; Mandi’s father Tim was a longtime EHS coach and athletic director and a 2015 inductee.
