Seniors Sadie Hamrin and Linaes Whiting were honored as this year’s Lumberjack Athletes of the Year.
Hamrin earned nearly countless varsity letters and went to several state tournaments throughout her time as a Lumberjack. As a senior, she was captain of the cross country, nordic skiing and track and field teams. Perhaps Hamrin’s most impressive skill is away from the courses and tracks, as she plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in violin performance at the Baylor School of Music, starting in the fall.
Whiting has spent time on six different BHS varsity teams, including five in each school year since he was a sophomore. This year he was in soccer, football and cross country in the fall, basketball in the winter, and this spring he decided to go out for baseball instead of his usual spring sport, track and field.
