Track: Former WPIAL track and field stars to compete in Peru

Written by Brad Everett on .

Brad Everett profiles Knoch graduate Jordan Geist and Peters Township graduate Nick Wolk, who will be competing in this weekend's Pan American Games in Peru.

"Two former WPIAL track and field stars will leave the country for the first time this week when they travel to Peru.

Jordan Geist said he hopes to spend some time at the beach.

Nick Wolk said he wouldn't mind checking out the famous Machu Picchu ruins.

However, it primarily will be a business trip for both, one they said will be a dream come true as they represent the United States in an international competition."
