Last week Carson High School celebrated 19 senior student-athletes who will continue their athletic careers in college. Nevada State Champion for Pole Vault, Kai Miller, will continue with Track & Field for the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colo. Miller holds the Carson High School Record for Pole Vault clearing 16 feet, 2 inches.

Lukas Taggart, also heading to the Colorado School of Mines, won the boys golf North 5A regional tournament earlier in May at Dayton Valley, then finished tied for third in state. For his efforts, he was named the North 5A Athlete of the Year last week by North 5A coaches.

“These athletes were outstanding role models and competitors at Carson High School and are taking their talents from the JC level to the Division 1 level,” said Carson High School Athletic Director Blair Roman. “We congratulate them on their outstanding accomplishments and wish them the best of luck as they continue their athletic careers at the next level.”
