The accolades continue for Lander Valley High School track standout Gage Gose. Gose was named the Gatorade Track Athlete of the Year for Wyoming, the first Lander Tiger ever honored with the track award.
This is the 38th year of the Gatorade Award that selects the best athlete in each state among a wide variety of sports.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Gose was the male award winner after he won the Nike National Track Meet earlier this month in the 400-meter hurdles.
In addition to the national title, Gose shattered the all-class 300-meter hurdle mark at the state meet in Casper in May and set a new Lander Valley high school record in both the 110-meter high hurdles and the 200-meter dash.
The honor student carries a 4.19-grade point average and has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete in track and field at Davidson University in North Caroline.
Gose is the son of Ben and Susan Gose and the grandson of Dr. Roger and Barbara Gose.
