Mulit-Sport star Simmelink leading Bears back in post season

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Central Valley Bears are hoping to make some noise in the state tournament once again, Senior Mady Simmelink is doing her part to lead on and off the court.

Simmelink will become the first female athlete at Central Valley to graduate with 12 varsity athletic letters, and holds down a 3.9 GPA.  She's the subject of this week's Shining Star.
