Video: The Northwest School's Ali Putnam

SEATTLE - Northwest School senior Ali Putnam has a lot on her plate in the athletic arena and the classroom, but she still succeeds in both.

Ali is co-captain of the volleyball and basketball teams, but her real love is the water. She plays on the water polo team in the spring and she is a lifeguard and teaches swim lessons.

Ali wants to study marine biology when she goes to college, which shouldn't be a major challenge since she already sports a 3.9 GPA. She has been accepted as a candidate to her dream school, Duke University.
