Athletic Panel at Upper School Forum

At last Friday’s Upper School Forum, the Athletic Department hosted a panel discussion with inspirational speakers who shared their experiences in high school, collegiate, and professional sports. The esteemed panel included Bush Girls Varsity Basketball Assistant Coach Cici West, who played Division 1 basketball on a full scholarship at Portland State; Bush Girls Varsity Basketball Head Coach Sara Fischer, who earned All-Conference honors as an Academic All-American playing basketball at Wesleyan University; Bush Girls Varsity Volleyball Coach Addie Picha, who played volleyball at the University of San Diego and is currently pursuing a Master of Athletic Administration degree while playing beach volleyball for the University of Washington; and, Jamal Crawford, one of Seattle’s most accomplished basketball players, whose impressive NBA career includes being named NBA Sixth Man of the Year three times and being the all-time leader in four-point plays. Thank you to our panelists for sharing their inspiring stories and expert advice. For photographs from this event, click here.
