Johnson on her way to Pima

Wickenburg High School’s Masaada Johnson last week officially signed her Letter of Intent to compete in track and field next spring for Pima Community College in Tucson. Johnson, who just graduated this spring, qualified in four events (100 meter dash, high jump, triple jump and long jump) at the Division III state track and field championships in Mesa this past season. She finished 11th in the state finals 100 meter dash; 11th in the long jump, and sixth in the triple jump.  She eventually was selected as Wranglers’ Most Valuable girls track athlete for the third straight year (only the third Lady Wrangler to do so in the 34 years of track and field history at the school). Accompanying her in the signing were assistant track coach Ronn Tillapaugh (left) and retiring head track coach Doug Clementz. After two years at Pima, she hopes to transfer to a four-year college and continue to participate in track and field. The versatile athlete also played for the Lady Wranglers’ volleyball and basketball teams this past school year.
