New North Central Washington Sports Awards standards were established by present and former Wenatchee athletes Isaiah Brandt-Sims and Hannah Kiser as a result of being honored this year. Joe Harris, formerly of Chelan, equalled a record as well.
Brandt-Sims continued to make his mark athletically by being named NCW Sports Awards High School Male Athlete of the Year for 2013-14. The recently graduated Wenatchee High senior became the first male athlete over the 44-year span of the NCW Sports Awards to receive the award three times in the high school category. Brandt-Sims, who was co-recipient with Omak’s Dylan Green as a freshman and also received the award last year, joins former Cascade standout Megan Franza as the only three-time recipients while competing in high school.
