Issaquah High Sports Medicine Students Win Fifth Straight State Competition at WCTSMA State Championship

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on 2 May, 2017
Washington State is the home of the first high school sports med programs around the nation and first sports medicine competition in the nation. Our state competition is known as the most difficult and diverse state competition so there are many states that bring their best to us to challenge us and prepare for the national competition. 

Disciplines include General Sports Medicine Tests, Practical Skill Specialists, Medical Term Specialists, Anatomy and Physiology Specialists, Emergency Responder Specialists, Exercise Physiology, and Quiz Bowls.

At this year’s conference, there were over 800 students competing from 48 different schools - one of which was the recently crown California State Champion. 

For the fifth year in a row Issaquah High School won the entire competition and are the WCTSMA State Champions! IHS had 4 students in the top 5 overall, taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th (All 20 team members were in the top 10% of all competitors). They took 1st and 2nd in the Medical Terminology Competition, and tied for 1st place (Both of our team members got the same score and tied for the Championship) in Exercise Physiology. Additionally IHS placed 1st and 2nd in the Emergency Responder, placed 1st and 3rd in the Anatomy and Physiology, and also won Speed Taping Competition, taking 2nd in the Quiz Bowl Competition.
