Tristan Forsythe: 1600-meter state champion

Fresh off the Varsity Cross Country team’s PIAA State Championship win last fall, junior Tristan Forsythe charged ahead to track and field competitions. In February, he competed in the 110th annual NYRR Millrose Games, the world’s most prestigious indoor track and field competition, where his time qualified him for a spot at the Pennsylvania Track and Field Coaches Association (PTFCA) State Indoor Track Championships. In May, Tristan became a WPIAL Champion with an upset win in the 1600-meter race, giving him the #1 seed in the PIAA State Championship race—which he won with a time of 4:12.36! Just 48 hours prior to the race, Tristan received the school’s Cassy Richards ’01 Athlete of the Year award which celebrates a student-athlete of strong character who has competed successfully at the highest athletic levels. Cassandra ‘Cassy’ Richards ’01 is the only other individual State Champion in WT history.
