Rick Noji 
Franklin High School, 1985

Rick Noji was one of the best high school track and field athletes in the state of Washington.  In 1984, competing for Franklin High School at the Metro League Championships, Rick Noji set the all-time state high jump record at 7’ 4 ½” which still stands today, over 25 years later.  Later that year at the state championship meet he won the state high jump at a height of 6’10”.  In 1985, Noji continued his prowess in the sport with a state championship in the high jump at 7’ 0”.  In addition he also won the state championship in the long jump with a 23’ 1 ¼” jump and also a time of 21.52 in the 200 meters for a first place finish.
After high school, Noji went on to compete for the University of Washington Track and Field team.   Noji was among the best track and field athletes to ever compete at the University of Washington.  Noji was a six-time All-American, won a Pac-10 title and finished second in the NCAA indoor championship and third in the NCAA outdoor championships.  Noji currently holds the University of Washington high jump record at 7’ 6”.  He was inducted into the Husky Hall of Fame in 1999.  Noji was also successful at the international level, competing in three World Championships (1991, 1993 and 1995) and four U.S. Olympic Trials (1984, 1988, 1992 and 1996). At the time Noji set his personal best of 7’ 7” he stood 5’ 8”.  This places him second all time in the world for height over head ratio for high jumpers.
