Shining Star Senior Night: West Valley’s Imada, Freeman’s Parisotto

SPOKANE, Wash. — So many of the seniors that won’t get to play their final spring season are not just great athletes, but great students and important members of their community.

Tonight, we honored two different three-sport athletes that are immersed in school activities as well.

Kilee Imada: The type of person every coach wants on their team. Three coaches get to teach her at West Valley…as Imada plays volleyball, basketball and softball. She’s been voted most inspirational, always providing excitement and motivation to her teammates, breathing life into the game. Kilee helped the Eagles to a 2nd place finish in basketball at state this year. Softball is where she tears it up. First team All-Great Northern League as a freshman and sophomore. As a junior, she put up league MVP numbers, batting .652, and leading the league in homers and RBIs.  Imada’s involved in two more teams within the school as well, leadership and DECA. Her nominator says if anyone deserves to be recognized, it’s someone like Kilee.

Bradee Parisotto: Another three sport athlete, Parisotto also played volleyball, basketball and softball, but for Freeman. The state tournament is like her second home, as she’s helped the Scotties place all four years in volleyball. In basketball this year, they finished third. Bradee had an even better chance of getting Freeman to state in softball this spring, because she was a two-time all-league player. She excels in the classroom as well, maintaining a 4.0 GPA and becoming this year’s valedictorian at Freeman. Her athletic director and assistant principal said he watched her first batting practice of this season back in March, where Bradee stepped up to the plate, had rattled off 15 straight hits, knocking three out of the park like it’s easy.
