Ryan Peplinski, SGS Athletic Director, has been named the District VII Athletic Director of the Year by the Washington Secondary Schools Athletic Administrators Association (WSSAAA) at their recent state conference.
Ryan has been League Secretary for 20 years, League Treasurer for 7 years, League and District basketball tournament manager for 20 years, and a WSSAAA mentor to younger ADs. He also will serve as President for the new WSSAAA District 6.
“Ryan is as involved at all facets of high school athletics as one can be,” says Mike McCune, Athletic and Activities Director at Lakeside High School. “He served on seeding committees, private and public school committee, classification committee, technology committee, RPI committee and member school relations committee.”
“In a time where athletic director turnover is at an all-time high, Ryan has heard the call to help young ADs grow through their mentorship program. He is always willing to answer questions, lend perspective, and lead collaboratively with athletic directors from all over the area.”
