Vince Wright, a 2011 graduate from Waggener High School in Louisville, signed a scholarship offer last week with the St. Catharine College track team. Wright will run the 100 and 200 meter events and possibly compete in the long jump according to St. Catharine coach Blake Jones.
“Vince seems like a dedicated kid who is ready to start working to get better, which is want we need at this point,” said Jones.
Wright, who ran for Coach Robert Ross at Waggener, is planning on majoring in accounting. He will join two other former Waggener athletes who will be sophomores at St. Catharine in the fall. Sam Kpoh runs the 400 meters for the Patriots while Abdikabir “Nini” Mohammed runs the 100 and 200 meter events.
