McKenna Ellen was one of a kind at Fort Vancouver High this year.
Ellen was the lone winner in 2020 of the Gary Boggs Award, which honors 12-season athletes.
“Normally, there will be three or four winners, but I was the only one in my class to get it this year,” Ellen said. “I thought (the award) was amazing. I think it touched my mom even more. She went to Fort when Gary Boggs was still coaching. She knew what a great guy he was and how he touched Fort.”
McKenna Ellen touched Fort in her own way over the past four years.
She was a three-sport athlete every year at Fort, but she was not a star in all three sports.
But after playing multiple sports in middle school, she knew that’s something she wanted to do at Fort.
She started out playing volleyball her freshman fall season, but a run-in with a teammate soured her on that sport.
