Edmonds-Woodway High School’s boys cross country team won the 3A Academic State Championhips with a team GPA of 3.820.

EWHS Athletic Director Angie McGuire introduced the cross country athletes who could attend the meeting on Tuesday. She described them as hard-working young men, who can be seen at all hours running near campus. The group also volunteered at a number of events, including races and the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame event.

“We’re here to recognize them for their academic achievement, but I want to recognize them for being the well-rounded student athletes they are,” McGuire said.

Meadowdale’s athletic director Beth Marriott introduced senior Kelly Morgan, who won the state title for two swimming events earlier this year–the 100 meter butterfly and the 200 meter freestyle.

Morgan’s family just recently moved to the area from Virginia. Morgan’s father had attended Meadowdale High School. Now, as a retired coast guard serviceman, he wanted to bring his family back so his kids could attend his alma mater.

“Kelly has been wonderful as a new student to Meadowdale High School,” Marriott said. “We’re really excited to have her back home in Washington from Virginia.”

Morgan will be attending Washington State University in the fall, which is where her older sister goes to school now. Morgan will be swimming there.
