Track & Field Feature

Koalas Make History

We're proud of our very own Izabelle Trefts (Class of 2025) for winning a national championship in the 3000m race walk, the first in school history. All four of our race-walk student-athletes were named All-Americans for their accomplishments this season. That makes senior Victoria Heiser-Whatley (Class of 2023) an impressive four-time All-American. Plus, 15 Koalas earned AAC post-season recognition as All-Academic and Champions of Character honorees—recognizing their accomplishments on and off the field.
