Fife High School / Washington State University
Washington State University is Angela Jensen’s choice for her college athletic career. The Fife high hurdles star has times this season that rank her in the top 1% in the nation. As a sophomore she won the Seamount League championships in both the 100 and 300 hurdles, and she placed in both events at state with a second-place finish in the 100. As a junior she was state 3A champ in the 100 meters and 2nd in the 100 hurdles behind a two-time champion. She was unbeaten in her league, was first in the prestigious Pasco Invitational, and was named Athlete of the Meet at the Shelton Invitational. At the end of the year she was rated in the top 1% of all juniors in the USA in three events. This year, as a Senior, she did not lose a single race during the regular season as Fife was moved to 2A competition. She was West Central District 2A leader in 100, 200, 400, 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, and the high jump. Most of the season she had the top marks in the state in the 100 and 300 hurdles for all classifications. She was named the Outstanding Female Athlete at Pasco’s event which attracted the top hurdlers in all state classes. Last week at the West Central District Championships she won the 100 hurdles, the 300 hurdles and the high jump. Her times in the two hurdles were the state’s fastest in any classification at any district event held in the state. Angela also is a three-sport letter winner at Fife, winning all-league honors in Volleyball and becoming a regional qualifier for state in wrestling. An honor student with a 3.5 GPA, Jensen had scholarship offers from North Carolina, West Point, Notre Dame, Michigan, the University of Washington and Oregon. Her choice was WSU. Go Cougs! They’ll be faster with Jensen aboard, for sure.
