At the beginning of the semester, Jan. 8, Wyatt Lawson came here from East Nicolaus High School to participate in water polo for both his junior and senior year to help better prepare himself for when he enlists in the Navy to become a Navy Seal. Since Lawson moved later in the year, he was not able to play water polo so he moved onto his next sport, track and field, to participate in the 300 and 100-meter hurdles.
