July 23, 2018 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Western Washington University head track & field and cross country coach Pee Wee Halsell has announced that a talented group of 16 male student-athletes have signed to compete for the Vikings starting in the 2018-19 season. This group is in addition to the 18 female student-athletes that announced last month as program additions.

 

The class includes 15 student-athletes that will be coming to Western directly from the high school ranks and one junior college transfer. The incoming class hails widely from the state of Washington with 14 of the 16 hailing from the Evergreen State. The diverse class covers all the track & field specialties, with one throws specialist, one multi-event athlete, one hurdler, five distance runners, three sprinters and five jump specialists.

 

“This is another solid recruiting class. It is well rounded, encompassing  all event areas,” said head coach Pee Wee Halsell, who will enter his 32nd season coaching the Vikings in 2018-19. “We have some great quality as well as some promising and untapped talent. We are looking forward to adding this fine group of student-athletes to the Viking Family.”

 

Here is a rundown of the incoming male student-athletes that are set to join the WWU program for the 2018-19 season, with the cross country team scheduled to open the season September 15 at the Central Washington Invitational in Ellensburg.
