Track: Penn Hills track standout picks a college

Written by Brad Everett on .

Speed has been the name of the game for Isaiah Bailey, one of the WPIAL's top middle distance runners the last few years.

But when it came to picking a college, Bailey took his time.

A month after graduating from Penn Hills, Bailey announced earlier this week that he will be attending Mount Union. The Alliance, Ohio school is about two hours away from Penn Hills and is probably best known -- at least athletically -- for having a big-time Division III football program.

Bailey took to Twitter to announce his intentions.
