My pick for the greatest female track and field athlete in Thurston County History is Patsy Walker-Pointer from Yelm High School. See my story about Patsy below Here: https://www.coachweber.org/Patsy-Walker-Pointer.html

The oldest field event record in Thurston County History for girls is Patsy Walker’s 5’ 10” high jump set in 1976. The oldest running record is Patsy Walker’s 14.42 in the 100-meter hurdles. Patsy is also second on the all-time 400-meter list with a time of 56.6 set in 1975. She went on to win the national collegiate championship in the Heptathlon and was on the USA WORLD HEPTAHLON TEAM.
