Announcements and Important Events
Dodging the Competition - See what WHS alumna Jenica Dodge (cross country/track and field athlete, c/o 2014) is up to as a runner at Idaho State University:
Q: How do your workouts compare to the ones you did in high school?
A: The style of the workouts hasn't changed much. It's really come down to the number of repeats, the length of the tempo run or the pace that's prescribed based on my goal times for that season. I've been lucky enough to have some great coaches over the years who didn't try anything crazy with me. They knew what worked and they stuck with it.
Q: How difficult is it to balance sports and academics?
A: Being a collegiate student athlete has its ups and downs. Creating your class schedule gets tricky since there's a set practice time and that can conflict with important classes that are only offered at one time that semester. But having coaches, athletic counselors and professors who are willing to help out and work with you makes a huge difference.
Q: What is the most rewarding thing about being a college athlete?
A: The most rewarding thing for me is that I get chocolate milk after practice. Kidding! Having the opportunity to step on the starting line and represent a college that is doing so much to support me is a great feeling. A great race for me is a great race for my school.
