OLD TOWN – The record setting race walker will continue her career with Columbia College in South Carolina.
Old Town senior Izzy Trefts signed her letter of intent Thursday to commit to the Columbia College track team, to compete in the race walk.
Trefts set the state record in the 1600m race walk at the 2021 PVC Large School, with a 7:10.66 time, and won the Class B state championship in June.
She says that Columbia College offers one of the top race walk programs in the NAIA, and hopes this is the next step to help achieve her childhood dream.
“It means a lot, when I was little, I wanted to race walk, my dream was to go to the Olympics, but I can actually do that, and that’s the crazy part,” said Trefts.
