Corvallis stand-out to take distance running talents to Massachusetts

Skylar Rispens

Corvallis High School distance running star and recent graduate Brinson Wyche learned a lot about determination throughout his high school years.

He practiced it when the COVID pandemic sidelined his sophomore year track season and then again when he broke his arm just before the start of the cross-country season his junior year.

“I also learned a thing or two about making sure to give it my all through the end of any commitment, especially a race,” Wyche said.

This year at the state track meet Wyche was beaten in the final stretch of the 1600m race. He placed second with a time of 4:25.26.

“Even if you think you’re way ahead, there might be somebody behind you, so you have to follow through — all the way,” Wyche said.

Wyche also won the 3200m race with a time of 10:01.06 and placed 3rd in the 800m with a time of 1:58.33 at the state Class A Track Meet this year.

The determination of all of the coaches with Corvallis’ cross-country and track teams was the key factor to his success, and the success of other athletes at his school.
