Wenatchee High School Athletic Hall of Fame

Jack Mooberry
CLASS of 1927 Track, Baseball and Football ATHLETE
A three sport star with national caliber sprinter's speed, Jack won the state 220 yard title in both 1926 and '27, and finished second in the 100 yard dash in '27. He was a back and punter for the Panther gridders and an outfielder on the baseball squad.

Although Jack's promising college career was hindered by injuries beginning in his sophomore year at Washington State College, he had already recorded outstanding times in the 220 (21.2 seconds) and 100 yard (9.6) dashes.

As head track coach at Washington State, Jack earned national acclaim during 28 years guiding the program to establish the Cougars as a west coast and national power. He was named National Track Coach-of-the-Year in 1969. The track complex on the WSU campus is named in his honor.
