It is a widely known fact that Star Valley does not get much attention from colleges when it comes to athletics. Most Brave athletes will not go on to perform at the college level, even a smaller school.

However, Asefa Wetzel is no ordinary high school runner. Boasting an impressive 4 minute 16 second mile time, he has draw n lots of attention from colleges, one in particular. Recently, Wetzel signed with the University of Wyoming to run cross country and track.

Wetzel said, ” I am really looking forward to attending UW. The training facilities were super cool and really nice, so that will be a big step up from high school. My favorite thing about being a college athlete will be the competition. I will have really good people to run against and with so I will be able to run a lot faster.”

“When I’m not running, I’m gonna be chilling with the guys on the team and having an overall party at college,” Wetzel continued.

 

RUN FORREST RUN: Asefa flies through a cross country course.

THAT’S A WIN: Asefa Wetzel easily takes a first, with nobody even close to catching him at ISU’s Holt Arena.
