Kelly Blair-LaBounty 
Prosser High School, 1989

A Prosser High School graduate, Kelly was a three-sport standout and declared “arguably the best schoolgirl athlete ever in the state” by the Seattle Times.  Kelly was an all-league volleyball player, three-time all-league basketball player, two-time all-state basketball player, basketball state tournament MVP, while leading her team to the state championship, and winner of 10 individual state track titles.
 
While basketball was Kelly’s first love, track seemed to be her strongest suit.  After being heavily recruited for her skills on the court, Kelly decided to attend the University of Oregon, where she played basketball and participated in track.  After being awarded two letters on the court, Kelly decided it was time to concentrate on her track career.  The decision proved to be rewarding. 
 
While at the University of Oregon, Kelly was Pac-10 and NCAA champion in the heptathlon.  Named one of NCAA’s Top Eight, Kelly was declared a two-time track and field All-American at Oregon, and the second woman ever to win consecutive Pac-10 heptathlon titles.  Her performance placed her sixth all time on the U.S. collegiate performer’s chart.  She was later a member of the 1996 and 2000 Olympic teams in that same event. Perhaps one of the biggest moments in Kelly’s career was winning the 1996 Olympic Trials in the heptathlon at age 25.  She won the event by three points, becoming the first woman to beat Jackie Joyner Kersey in a heptathlon event in 12 years.
