Kentridge swimmer Hans Erickson is a WIAA/Wendy’s Athlete of the Week winner for Week 20, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association announced Wednesday.

Erickson, a senior, took first place in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle races at last week’s North Puget Sound League championships, where the Chargers won their third straight title. He also helped his 400 free relay team qualify for the Feb. 15-16 state meet.

Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA recognizes varsity athletes who exhibited an outstanding performance for the previous week (based off nominations). All varsity level students in good academic standing at their schools are eligible to receive the WIAA/Wendy’s Athlete of the Week Award. Students may win the award once during any given academic year.

Nominations are open to athletic administrators, coaches, fans and members of the media, with a weekly deadline of noon Tuesday.
