Westlake’s Kevin Walls is SWC Track MVP

Westlake High senior sprinter Kevin Walls was named Southwestern Conference MVP last week after taking firsts in four events at the annual league championships hosted at Amherst Steele Stadium.

Kevin won the 100 meter dash (11.12) , 200 meter dash (22.04) , and anchored the winning 4x100m and 4x200m relays for the second year in a row.

Walls was named Track MVP for the 2019 season, edging out quality contenders like Josh Hill from Amherst (last year’s MVP) who won 3 events this year, and Lakewood’s Tyler Hannah, who won 3 events and placed in a 4th. Joe Svec of Avon won the Field MVP after winning both the Shot Put and Discus events.

Kevin is the first Westlake athlete to ever win four events in the SWC meet, and he has done so twice. Additionally, Kevin holds two different Westlake team records.  Last year his 4x200m team broke the school record and this year at the SWC meet Kevin tied the school record in the 200m dash. He looks to improve on these marks and others in the upcoming weeks as he makes a push to qualify for the OHSAA state meet.

Other Westlake Track & Field team members earning all-conference honors were: 1st Team All-SWC – 4×100 – Lamar Griggs, Robert Fulop, Austin Norris, Kevin Walls, 4×200 – Anthony Fusco, Austin Norris, Robert Fulop, Kevin Wall, 100m – Kevin Walls, 200m – Kevin Walls.
