Stueckle Is News Tribune's High School Athlete Of The Year

| No Comments

Soon-to-be Husky Kayla Stueckle has been named the Tacoma News Tribune's High School Athlete of the Year across all sports. Stueckle, the state's top hurdler while also a standout soccer player, will bring her many talents to UW this fall.

Stueckle, an Emerald Ridge graduate, collected five 4A state track titles during her career, including three wins this season in the 100m hurdles, 300m hurdles, and the long jump, while also taking third at 200-meters.

"Kayla was, in our opinion, the young woman in the state of Washington that we had to have," Huskies track and field coach Greg Metcalf said. "First and foremost, she's aKAYLA_standalone_prod_affiliate_5.jpgn athlete. She's full of exciting potential. We look at our team and she definitely fills a need for us."

Metcalf remembers visiting the Stueckle (pronounced Stick-el) home in Puyallup last fall and seeing the whole family dressed in Huskies purple.

"I've been a Husky (fan) my whole life," Stueckle said. "I wasn't interested in going far away."
