SAAS Announces 2017 Athletic Contribution Awards

June 12, 2017 – Last week at Curtain Call, Seattle Academy announced their 2017 Athletic Contribution Awards. These athletic contribution awards are given each year to the young man and woman, in both the Middle and Upper School, who have contributed the most to the athletic program through leadership, courage, sportsmanship, and excellence. These multi-sport athletes embody the core values of Seattle Academy through sports

The Middle School Awards are named after Bruce Baldwin. This year’s female award went to 8th grader Elke Ambach, and the male award went to 8th grader Tyler Carter.

In the Upper School, the female award is named after Katherine Olson. There were two winners’ this year, seniors Olivia Miller and Michaela Smith. Olivia, who was an all-league track performer her junior year, also ran cross country, and this year played lacrosse, where she was awarded the team’s Coaches’ Award. Michaela was a four-year member of the girls’ varsity basketball team. She was named 2nd Team All Emerald City League (ECL) her senior year, after being named Honorable Mention the previous two years. The team won the ECL championship and did not lose a league game her last three years. This year Michaela was also a member of the varsity track team.

The male award also had co-winners, seniors Jordan Feinstein and Griffin Orser. Jordan was a four-year member of both the basketball and lacrosse programs which saw both teams win league championships, with lacrosse winning a state title this season. Griffin played both soccer and Ultimate. He was a member of the boys’ state championship soccer team his junior year, and this past season was an ECL Honorable Mention in Ultimate.
