Spike Walker

Community Colleges of Spokane
Class of 1994

Spike Walker was a track and field star from Battle Ground High School who threw the shot and discus for assistant coach Les Rurey at Spokane Falls CC.

Walker was an outstanding athlete who won the shot put (57’3 ¼”) in the 1970 WAACC Track Championships and finished second in the discus (153’9”) while helping Spokane win the WAACC Team Championship for head coach Mike Keller.

In 1971 Walker put the shot 61’3 ¼” to win the event and set an all-time NWAACC record that still stands today. His record throw helped lead Spokane to its second straight WAACC team track title.

He also set an NJCAA shot put record of 62’1” which held for many years. He went from Spokane Falls to a successful track career at Oregon State University, and has become a successful published author.
