WEST SALEM ATHLETICS
Congratulations to Simon Thompson on being voted as Statesman Journal Athlete of the Week!
Congratulations to Andres Labate being selected Athlete of the Week
West Salem HS track and field coach, Erich Herber, was recently selected by the Oregon Athletic Coaches Association as their nominee for the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) “2018 Coach of the Year” for Boys Track.
As the state representative, Coach Herber will now compete against a coach from each of the following states: Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and Wyoming. The section 8 winner from these states will then compete for the National Coach of the Year with the representatives from the other 7 sections of the United States.
Coach Herber has surrounded himself with an excellent crew of assistant coaches, and along with some amazing athletes, they brought home the first athletic team title in West Salem High School’s history.
