Wyatt Whalen


Track & Field

Bishop Verot Vikings

Whalen paced the field in the shotput at the FHSAA Class 2A State Championships, taking home gold for the second consecutive year. His throw of 16.48m was .16 higher than the runner up, and only one other competitor surpassed the 16-meter mark.

“There is just nothing cooler than winning and defending. That’s wins in back-to-back chapters. Winning the last athletic event of my high school career is a dream come true.”
