Swimmer Elli Straume of Kamiak High School is our November 2018 Russell & Hill Female Student Athlete of the Month. At this year’s state 4A swim
meet, she took 2nd place in the 200 freestyle (6th fastest in 4A state meet history); 3rd place in the 500 freestyle and her relay teams took 2nd
in the 200 freestyle and 7th in the 200 medley. Elli has 12 state podiums in her 3 years at the state meet, with one year to go. (If you’re doing
the math, that’s placing everytime she swims at state). Pictured here with her coach Chris Erickson of Kamiak High School.
