EHS Sports Medicine Students Excel At WCTSMA Competition



Portions contributed by Angela Bushmaker, EHS Head Athletic Trainer and Sports Medicine Teacher:

Seventeen Enumclaw High School Sports Medicine students traveled to Vancouver Washington over the weekend for the Washington Career and Technical Sports Medicine Association Competition. This competition involves each student taking at least 2-3 tests over two days. Students also had the opportunity to meet other instructors and students from 36 other schools in Washington and 3 schools from California.

On Thursday, our students visited Linfield and George Fox in Oregon, both of which have Athletic Training programs. The actual competition was on Friday and Saturday. Highlights from the competition include:

  • Seven EHS students applied for leadership positions on the WCTSMA Student Leadership Board. Out of those seven students, we had five appointed including M. LaMotte, M. Molieri, P. Perez, S. Carlson and B. Schmidt.  Our students were crowned WCTSMA Academic State Champions with a combined GPA of 3.779 for the 14 Varsity Competitors!
  • Our students received two plaques representing our roll in two of our athletic teams, Wrestling and Gymnastics, winning state championships this year. This is the third plaque for Wrestling our program has received.
  • Two of our seniors received WCTSMA Scholarships. K. Patrick received the WCTSMA $600 Scholarship and S. Myers received the WCTSMA $300 Scholarship.
  • Our group finished 16th out of 39 schools.
  • K. Patrick, our WCTSMA Student President for 2011 -2012 year, did an amazing job of running all activities as well as leading the student leadership meetings.
  • Angela Bushmaker was elected to be the WCTSMA Vice President for a two-year term.  After that, the position matriculates to President for two years.

Enumclaw was well represented at the State Competition this year! Next year it will be in the Tri-Cities April 26-27, and we are so excited to represent Enumclaw for the fifth year in a row!
