Recent 2013 Branson High School graduate, Zach Wuest, has committed to attend Missouri Southern State University (Joplin, MO) having enrolled for fall 2013 classes and signed with intent to join the MSSU Men’s Track and Field Team. Wuest will compete in pole vault for the NCAA Division II Lions who are a member of the MIAA Conference. Wuest has been a four-year letter winner for the Pirates having won the 2013 Central Ozarks Conference Large School Pole Vault Champion and was a Class-4 All-State medalist in 2012 and 2013 at the Missouri State High School Activities Association State Championships in Jefferson City (MO). Wuest plans to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing while attending MSSU. Wuest stated, “I have been familiar with MOSO’s program, Coach Schiding and many of the Lion vault athletes for a number of years. There is incredible team unity at Southern and I anticipate competing on teams that will battle for MIAA conference titles and will place athletes in Nationals on a regular basis. This is a good fit for me to develop as a collegiate vaulter.”
