Unruh-Thomas and Walburn earn Student Athlete of the Month honors


PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State track and field student athletes, Elise Unruh-Thomas and Lee Walburn were each named WSU Student Athlete of the Month as announced this week.
 
Unruh-Thomas is a fifth-year graduate student with an undergraduate degree in Psychology that includes a minor in Human Development.  She ranks top-10 all-time at WSU in the indoor and outdoor 200-meter dash, as well as both the 60m (indoor only) and 100m (outdoor only), and 300m (indoor only).  Her top 60m (7.54), 200m (24.42), and 300m (39.53) times are each second-best in the Cougars’ sprints group this winter, and she has helped WSU’s 4X400m relay (3:42.65) to the ninth-best time in school history.
 
Multi athlete Lee Walburn, a Humanities major from Whitefish, Mont., has had his best winter as a collegiate athlete this season, notching PR’s in the 60m (6.98), long jump (6.69m), shot put (14.83m), and 60m hurdles (8.28).  On track to graduate in the Spring of 2024, Walburn played a major role on Washington State’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), contributing to conversations regarding the future of conference options for WSU athletes.
 
Washington State men’s and women’s track and field teams will continue the 2023-24 indoor schedule this weekend with the Air Force Last Chance (Feb. 16) and the Arkansas Qualifier (Feb. 16).
