Brady Palen of St. John's Catholic High School has signed his letter of intent to compete in Track & Field at the NCAA DI level at Wichita State.  Palen's specialty is in the high jump where he is the 1A defending state champion after jumping 6'10 1/2" at Cessna Stadium in the spring.  In his three years of competing in the high jump in high school, Palen has finished now worse than third in the state each year.  As a freshman, he finished 2nd place (6'4") and had the same height as a sophomore and took home the third place medal in the 1A Boys High Jump.  Brady will have a formal signing at St. John's Catholic High School in Beloit early next week.  (Photo from Wichita State Track & Field Twitter)
