Madison Edgewood senior Alejandro Trinidad-Echevarria has committed to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and plans to compete in men’s track and field.
Edgewood athletic director Chris Zwettler led a virtual “signing ceremony” announcing the decision, featuring Trinidad-Echevarria and his parents.
Also, Crusaders athletics tweeted: “Congratulations to Alejandro Trinidad-Echevarria on his signing to run track at UW-La Crosse next year. Thank you for all you’ve done at EHS. We can’t wait to see what you’ll do!”
Trinidad-Echevarria has been on the Crusaders’ boys track and field team for his high schools years.
He was a WIAA Division 2 sectional qualifier as a sophomore and junior and the Badger South Conference triple jump champion last year, Zwettler said.
The spring sports season wasn't held this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
