Our KRKO Russell & Hill Male Student Athlete of the Month for December 2019 is Taras Fesiienko of the Everett Seagulls Boys Basketball team. Taras set an Everett High School record for most points in a single game (43) in the Seagulls 69-58 win over rival Cascade in the annual BruGull Fest game on December 6th. He followed that up five days later by hitting a game winning 3-point shot with one second remaining to lift Everett to a 60-59 victory at Lake Stevens. Fesiienko scored 26 points including 6-3-point shots (3 in the first 2 minutes and 15 seconds) in a 73-53 win over Kingston.
Our KRKO Radio Russell & Hill Female Student Athlete of the Month for December 2019 is Emily Hood. In February 2019, the once-promising wrestler for the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors was diagnosed, right in the middle of her junior wrestling season, with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), which is an inoperable aggressive cancerous tumor on her brain stem. Emily receives regular treatment while still attending school for her senior year and is serving as a Manager/Coach on the Edmonds Woodway Girls Wrestling Team. She has even attended multi-day, out of area tournaments with the team, even though she is often fatigued or ill from the cancer and treatment. "Works hard, courageous to a fault and gives it her all every day," is how Edmonds-Woodway Girls Wrestling Coach Terry Ray has described her.
