Thomas & Farris Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week: Ian West


Fike High junior Ian West won his third state 3-A championship in pole vault in three years last week, making him this week’s Thomas & Farris Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week.

Ian cleared 15 feet, 6 inches on his first attempt to win the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 3-A title over Corey Ginley of East Henderson on Friday at N.C. A&T State University in Greensboro.

Ian, a standout football player at Fike, also competed in long jump and relay events during the spring track season. He was second in pole vault to Ginley in the state 3-A indoor track championship in February.

Ranked No. 3 in his class, Ian has a 4.897 weighted grade point average while taking International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement courses.

He is the sergeant-at-arms for the Fike Student Booster Club and the school’s Student Government Association. Ian also is a member of Good Samaritans Club, National Honor Society and Science National Honor Society at Fike.

When not competing for Fike’s track and field team, Ian participates in USATF and Junior Olympic meets with Sky’s the Limit track club of Wilson.

The son of Debra and Sonny West of Wilson, Ian regularly volunteers at Wilson Crisis Center.
