Fall prep sports seasons are wrapping up, and are coming to a close for former Sequim High stars on college athletic fields as well.

Here’s a quick look at some of the former Wolves competing for colleges and universities across the country:

Murray Bingham

A freshman at Southern Virginia University, Murray Bingham joined his cross country teammates at the NCAA Division III South/Southeast Regional Championships on Nov. 16. Bingham placed second on the team and 49th overall at the competition, clocking the 8-kilometer course in 26:38.6.

“What the results won’t show is Murray right with the lead group until the third mile,” Southern Virginia head coach Kyle Chandler said. “He had a great competitive spirit as he took a risk to give him a better chance at a higher finish.”

Bingham placed eighth at the Capital Athletic Conference on Nov. 2 with a 27:48 finish.

While at Sequim High, Bingham was a three-time state 2A cross country meet qualifier (he placed 13th as a senior) and state champion in the 800-meter race as part of the state 2A champion Sequim High track and field earlier this year.

Miguel Moroles

A running back his first couple of seasons at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Miguel Moroles made the switch to wide receiver and had nine receptions for 63 yards in his senior collegiate season in 2019.

Moroles finishes his career with the Bears (5-5) with 29 catches for 213 yards and a touchdown, to go with 14 rushes for 45 yards.

A 2015 Sequim High graduate, Moroles earned all-Olympic League first team honors at Sequim High as a quarterback.

Heidi Vereide

A defender for the Colorado Christian University’s women’s soccer squad, senior Heidi Vereide earned six starts for the Cougars (4-11-1) this fall.

Vereide had a season-high 66 minutes played on Oct. 11 at Dixie State and topped 40 minutes seven times.

A 2015 Sequim High graduate, Vereide competed in both soccer and track and field while at SHS. She also played at Peninsula College before transferring to Colorado Christian, redshirting her first year (2017) and playing in seven games in 2018.

Waverly Shreffler

A junior competing for Western Washington University’s cross country team, Waverly Shreffler capped her season with a 44th-place finish at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) finals on Oct. 26, covering the 6-kilometer course in 24:16.4.

She was one of 15 Viking runners to qualify for the GNAC Cross Country All-Academic Team. Studying environmental education, Shreffler posted a 3.63 grade-point-average.

A 2016 Sequim High graduate, Shreffler was a two-time state 2A meet qualifier in cross county and state 800-meter champ in track and field in 2016.

Claire Henninger

A red-shirt freshman in 2019, Claire Henninger has seen action in four games for the nationally-ranked Western Washington University’s women’s soccer team.

Henninger got a start and recorded a shutout as the Vikings whitewashed Saint Martin’s 6-0 on Oct. 15.

She added appearances in relief in three other games, making a total of four saves and not allowing a score.

The Vikings (20-2) are riding a 16-game win streak into the NCAA Div. II third-round game against Point Loma on Dec, 5.

A 2018 Sequim High graduate, Henninger was named to the All-Olympic League First Team three times and twice earned 2A Honorable Mention All-State honors.
