WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME
Jack Mooberry starred in track for Wenatchee High School as a sprinter winning state titles in the 220-yard dash in consecutive years, 1926-27, and finishing second in the 100 in 1927. He came to Washington State and immediately showed promise by recording excellent times despite recurring leg injuries. Jack eventually returned to Washington State to coach and build the track program into a national power. His teams compiled a dual meet record of 123-59-1. Mooberry coached and helped develop 53 All-Americans, a dozen NCAA champions, and six Olympians from three countries. He was selected as National Coach of the Year by the U.S. Track Coaches Association in 1978. The WSU track & field complex is named in his honor.
