It was March 2013. Wade Walder was just finishing up his freshman basketball season at Lockport Township. 

He was looking for a way to stay in shape in the offseason, so he decided to join the track and field team.

Fast forward six years, and Walder is now a track and field All-American who just completed his junior season at Butler University.
