Ligonier Valley senior Miles Higgins will aim for a WPIAL repeat this spring, but he’ll do so with his college plans firmly in place.
Higgins committed to continue his track and field career at North Carolina Wilmington, a Division I program.
The 6-foot-3 Higgins won the WPIAL Class 2A javelin title last season with a throw of 169 feet, 10 inches. He ended up fourth at the PIAA meet with a mark of 183-6.
A head-turning season also included a Westmoreland County Coaches Association championship as he registered a toss of 180-4. The mark was the top in the WPIAL in either classification.
Higgins also competed in the long and triple jumps as a junior. He also plays football and basketball for the Rams.
UNC-Wilmington is in the Colonial Athletic Association.
