Mariko Ronan has earned honors as one of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association/Wendy’s Athletes of the Week.

Ronan, a varsity gymnast for the Bainbridge Spartans, earned the honor for Week 16 (Dec. 9-15).

Ronan led her team to a season-high score in the home meet against Ingraham and Roosevelt. She placed second in the all-around with a score of 34.60, and was also first in both the beam (8.90) and floor exercise (9.40).

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

Winning athletes must be nominated by their respective athletic administrators, coaches, fans and members of the media.
