Wa-Hi track athletes named All-Americans
Congratulations to Walla Walla High School Track & Field athletes Isaiah Roberson, Caleb Morehead, Ian Calhoon and Jake Hisaw for being named All-Americans. This team qualified for the Nike Outdoor National Championships, after winning the state championship in the 4x100 meter relay in a school record time of 41.99.
These Wa-Hi student-athletes kept practicing for two additional weeks following state and competed in Eugene, Oregon at Historic Hayward field, on the University of Oregon campus. They won their preliminary heat, and then came back to finish 2nd overall at the Outdoor National Championships.
“Not only is this the first team to ever win a state title, but they are now the first team to be recognized as All-Americans for the 4x100 meter relay,” said Coach Eric Hisaw. “It’s a really cool honor for the kids and now they have their official All-American status certificate.”
