Alisha Edwards of Redlands High School verbally committed to UCLA track and field program following her official visit over the weekend.
“UCLA not only has a stellar academic program but the team is equally amazing,” Edwards said. “The members of the track team made me feel so welcomed and they are just a genuine group of people. The coaching staff is great and I felt a great vibe as soon as I arrived (on campus).”
Despite competing in other events as a member of the RHS Terriers’ track & field program, she plans to only compete as a high jumper.
But before she can wear the blue and gold, she will represent the Terriers for her senior season.
“My goal (for my senior) season is to progress mentally and physically as an athlete,” she said. “I am definitely looking to reach my personal record in the high jump and repeat at CIF. My number one goal is state.”
With a personal record of 5 foot 8 inches, Edwards is no stranger to CIF and the competitive journey that comes with reaching the event. She was a member of the back-to-back CIF Southern Section Division 2 championship teams.
While she finished second at CIF-SS in 2015, she earned an individual high jump title in 2014.
