It isn’t just her great athletic moves that help King’s West senior Chloe Mosey excel in life, it’s also her leadership and wonderful attitude. All three factors earned Mosey the honor of Bremerton Patriot Student-Athlete of the Year.

The 6-footer excelled for four years as a power forward on King’s West’s basketball team, collecting a boatload of honors and a scholarship from NAIA powerhouse Montana Western University.

Mosey led the Warriors into the state tournament four straight years and landed on the All-Star State Tournament team in 2007. She was an all-district and first-team All-SeaTac League selection for three seasons. Mosey led the team in scoring her junior and senior years with more than 16 points per game, and averaged a double-double, with 10.7 rebounds per contest over the same period.

As respected as her resume in hoops is, Mosey’s sports highlights weren’t limited to the hardwood.

Mosey also lettered for King West for three years in track and field, and holds the Warriors’ school record in the discus. She was a member of a team that was one of the school’s best-kept secrets, playing golf during her senior year. KW only had three girls hit the links, so it wasn’t an official team, but it still required Mosey to practice all season long while juggling her track duties and continuing to play on her AAU hoop team, Total Package.

“I was disappointed that I didn’t have the opportunity to coach her in another sport and get to know her better,” Rick Nohmy, the school’s athletic director and girls golf coach, said. “She’s such a great athlete and a great kid. We all know that basketball is her main sport, but she was always there putting in 100 percent in track and field and golf too.”

While academics don’t come as naturally to Mosey as the pick-and-roll, she applied her efforts equally intensely in her studies, earning a 2.93 GPA in a college prep program where As don’t come easy for anyone. In addition, Mosey devoted considerable time to other worthwhile school activities, serving as the ASB vice president her senior year, and going on mission trips to Honduras during the spring breaks of 2006 and 2007.

Outside of King’s West, Mosey has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and been a reader at Crown Hill Elementary School.

“From my perspective, hard work is the single most important factor for success as a human being,” said King’s West basketball coach Bryan Hanley, “and Chloe’s got that by the truckload.”
