Walker signs with Ft. Lewis College

Many athletes who are looking to continue their careers past the prep level have said deciding where to go to school was a tough, stressful decision.
Mike Walker isn’t one of them.
Walker, who will graduate from Los Alamos High School this spring, had a pretty good idea where he wanted to continue his running career and on Wednesday made it official.
In a ceremony at LAHS Wednesday, Walker signed his National Letter of Intent to participate in cross country with the Fort Lewis Skyhawks.
Fort Lewis is a Division-II school in Colorado and participates in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, which has become a hotbed of runners from northern New Mexico.
“It was a good fit,” Walker said of his decision to run for the Skyhawks. “I liked the campus and the atmosphere. I talked to the coach and members of the team. They’re good people. It seemed like the right option.”
Walker, who came into his own as a senior on the Hilltopper squad in 2013, should feel right at home on the Fort Lewis roster. Last season, Fort Lewis featured six runners from New Mexico, including former Rio Rancho runner Preston Charlie and former Sandia standout Zach Chenowith.
Wednesday was the first day high school athletes could sign letters of intent to join Division-I and Division-II colleges.
