Community sports roundup: Local duo honored by WWU athletics

Cordell Cummings and Jeremiah Lee were deemed among the best Western Washington University athletics had to offer during the 2018-19 school year.

The Snohomish County pair were two of the six athletes honored with awards at the Dub Dub Blue Awards Ceremony held last Tuesday in Bellingham.

Cummings, a graduate of Arlington High School who is a junior on the men’s track and field team, was named the school’s Male Athlete of the Year. Cummings won three individual Great Northwest Athletic Conference championships, claiming the 60-meter hurdles at the Indoor Championships and both the 110 and 400 hurdles at the Outdoor Championships. He became just the second athlete in the conference’s 17-year history to sweep the hurdles titles.

Lee, a graduate of Grace Academy who’s a junior defender on the men’s soccer team, shared the Male Scholar Athlete of the Year award. Lee started all 18 of the Vikings’ games, helping the team to an 11-6-1 record. In the classroom Lee carries a 3.68 grade-point average in business management and will graduate this spring.
