South Whidbey High School senior Romey Rohde recently signed a letter of intent to compete in track for the University of St. Mary in Leavenworth Kansas.

“I chose the University of St. Mary because I thought they would be a good program for me,” Rohde said.

Rodhe placed seventh in the state 1A a track meet last spring and has a personal best 12-09 in the event. He hopes to break the school record of 13 feet when he returns to the state meet this weekend.

Rodhe realized he had a chance to earn a college scholarship when St. Mary contacted him after last year’s state meet.

“I am very grateful for my coach Shauna (Davies) because she is always finding the positives in every meet,” Rohde said. “Without her, none of these doors in my life would have opened up.”
