WCTSMA members from Enumclaw High School competed in the 13th annual St. Francis High School Sports Medicine Competition. Competitors took a written, oral, and taping component for the testing. Enumclaw finished 2nd in the small school team division which qualifies them for the online national championship event held in May. WCTSMA members who competed were State President Matteo Molieri, State Officer McKenna Patrick, State Officer Stefan Alvidiez, Jazmyn Anderson, Katy Armstrong, and Sam Fisher. Vice President Angela Bushmaker is their instructor. Way to go Enumclaw!
In two weeks WCTSMA will converge on Yakima for the 20th annual Spring Symposium and State Competition. Record numbers of students will fill the halls of the Yakima Convention Center. Over 700 are already signed up for the event.
Houston Kraft will speak to the membership on leadership and Jim Wallis will tell his story about the development of kiniseo taping while providing a "hands on" workshop for instructors.
The event will "kick off" with a Thursday evening social at the YMCA where teams can check-in early for registration. The new addition to this year is a Friday night dance hosted by your State Officers. Teams are encouraged to dress in their school colors while instructors and staff will be sporting their 70's swag.

WCTSMA State Officers and BOD advisers converged on Olympia February 5, 2014 to push for continued support of our CTE programs throughout the state. A legislative educational session started off the day at North Thurston High School then proceeded to the Legislation Building for meetings and CTSO promotion proceedings. All eight CTSO's participated in the legislative process. State Officers and advisers met with their State Representatives and Senators throughout the day telling them why they need to support CTE programs in our state. President Matteo Molieri, Vice President Cody Burk, and State Officer Director Chris Hiatt returned to Olympia February 12, 2014 for a meeting with Governor Inslee to sign the CTE Declaration. Our Twitter feed has a photograph of President Molieri with Goveror Inslee. Check it out!
