• Congratulations Jamie Townsend


    Jamie was selected as WIAA September Athlete of the Month.  He was awarded this for his Sportsmanship by Football Coach Murguia. 


    Jamie Townsend is an eighth grader at Ochoa Middle School in Pasco, Wash. He participates in football, basketball, track and is a part of the school’s student leadership group which organizes assemblies, activities and community projects.

    Last season, Townsend battled through an injury during the basketball season. He didn’t let that stop him from contributing though, cheering on his team while rehabilitating from his injury. On the football field, he is a true leader and motivator and head coach Oscar Murguia said Townsend serves as another coach on the field when he is in the game.

    In the classroom, Townsend holds a 3.95 GPA and has integrated into the Ellen Ochoa community seamlessly since moving to a new town last year. The school’s Athletic Director, Carolynn Jones, said that Townsend’s positive attitude and character has helped make him a successful student.

    “Our favorite characteristic of Jamie is his confidence,” Jones said. “Jamie has had some tough times in and out of school and sports but he is confident in himself and no matter what is thrown at him he rises and overcomes the issue.”
