Seekins finished the 2A district tournament in a big way, scoring three goals and an assist in a win over Tumwater then accounting for all four goals in a state playoff-clinching win over Capital.

The other nominees were Columbia River cross country runner Austin Blankenship, Camas cross country runner Alexa Efraimson and La Center volleyball player Alyssa Carnes.

Nominees and the online ballot are posted at each Monday and voting continues until 8 p.m. Thursday. Next week’s balloting will be the final one of the fall sports season. The winter athlete of the week vote will begin Dec. 9.
