Cate School’s Chloe King was recognized at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon as a Phil Womble Award recipient.
The Round Table presents the Phil Womble Ethics in Sports Award to student-athletes who demonstrate the highest standards of ethics and sportsmanship. Each school selects a junior on an annual basis.
King is a three-sport athlete at Cate, participating in cross country, water polo and swimming. Outside of athletics, King has earned her pilots license, plays the violin, and has been named to be the editor in chief of the school newspaper for her senior year.
“The Womble Award is a fitting tribute to Chloe because of her academic passion in government affairs and equality,” said award presenter Bob Archer.
Cate Athletic Director Wade Ransom commended King.
“The three-sport athlete is a dying breed and I think in terms of the Womble award, it’s totally fitting (to recognize King) because here’s a kid that puts the needs of our school and our athletic program ahead of possibly specializing and doing her own thing and concentrating on one area,” Ransom said. “We’re really lucky because she gets to have an impact on all three seasons, on all three teams that she’s on. Her passion for government and politics is also fitting for this award because making sure that everyone has an equal voice in our community is one of her top priorities.”
