Steach excels across the board academically, but his true passion is in science. "Ever since I can remember I've wanted to be an engineer and it just sort of fit together, thinking scientifically has always come pretty easy for me," Steach said.
He sees his own accomplishments as just one of the reasons why this Chiawana team is special. "As far as being a Chiawana athlete, I think it speaks well on our program that we have athletes out here who are capable of being both good athletes and good students as well."
For now, his main goal is getting the Riverhawks back to the Tacoma Dome turf, for a chance to defend their state title. "It was out of this world when we went to state last year. It was just, you really can't describe it. It was just a whole different experience . And just having the chance to go back, it's just a blessing. You don't get that lucky very often where you have the group of guys that we have and the chance to repeat that."
