MONMOUTH — Darian Wilson had an impressive start to her collegiate athletic career on the Western Oregon University track and field team last year, when she competed in the NCAA Division II National Championship for javelin, came in seventh, and picked up an All-American accolade along the way.

A freshman then, Wilson said she had so much fun last year that she changed her major from the two-year nursing program to community health because of track.
