Congratulations to Interlake's Shelton Henton for being voted SBLive’s WaFd Bank Washington High School Athlete of the Week for Jan. 8-Jan. 13!

Henton scored a career-high 45 points in a non-league victory over Kent-Meridian, breaking the record set by ex-UW standout Donald Watts. Followed that up with 32 points and 13 rebounds in a win over 3A KingCo-leading Liberty of Issaquah.

Henton received 52.8% of the vote, beating out Mead boys basketball standout Karson Maze, who finished second with 38.7%.
