Huseby wins WAC Athlete of Week

Hood River Valley High School graduate Dana Huseby was named the Western Athletic Conference Indoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week for her performance in the pole vault at last week’s Holiday Inn Classic. Huseby, a sophomore at the University of Nevada, finished second in the pole vault by clearing the provisional qualifying height of 12 feet, five-and-a-half inches, en route to helping the Wolfpack to their third straight conference win. Huseby will look to top that mark at the WAC Championships, going on through today in Reno, Nev.
