Saturday notes — Williams to participate in track, and more
Kasen Williams, who a year ago decided not to participate in track, will make his debut for the Husky track and field team next weekend.
According to this track blog, Williams will participate in the long jump and possibly the triple jump.
Williams decided not to run track last year to concentrate on football.
As you can read in his bio, he is one of the most decorated track athletes in Washington high school history, winning five state titles in various jumping events. His 77 receptions as a sophomore were also the third-most in UW history.
As you can see on the roster, Danny Shelton is also participating in track in throwing events.
