Rosemary McDonagh

Holy Names Academy
Senior – cross country

A “reliable and unshakable” member of a team that won the 3A state championship in November, Rosemary “commanded more respect than any other captain I have ever had,” said coach Erin McCormick. A three-year varsity runner with a 4.0 GPA, Rosemary finished 17th in the state meet. Outside of running, she has helped recruit student volunteers to build homes in New Orleans during spring break.

Addison Jeske

Pope John Paul II High School
Senior – cross country, basketball, baseball

A three-sport captain with a 3.993 GPA, Addison has been named team MVP in cross country, most inspirational in baseball, and all-league honorable mention in basketball. He led the school’s Knowledge Bowl team to the 1B state championship in 2013 and currently serves as ASB president. An altar server since fifth grade at St. Michael Parish in Olympia, he is also a member of the school robotics club, debate team, jazz band and choir.

Each month, Northwest Catholic will feature two high school Athletes of the Month. These athletes are nominated by their schools and selected by a board with members from CYO athletics, Catholic schools and the Fulcrum Foundation. In June, two of these athletes will be selected as Athletes of the Year and receive $1,000 scholarships. These athletes are chosen based on their achievements on and off the field, and in their communities.
