Isaac Updike



Isaac Updike is the son of Karen and Greg Updike and twin brother of TRE teammate Luke Updike. Isaac grew up in Ketchikan, Alaska, and loved to play just about any sport. In high school his running career was only during cross country, since his other focus was on soccer.

While attending Eastern Oregon University, he walked on to the track team and found another passion in track and field. He graduated college with a business degree in marketing and management.

When Isaac is not on the track, you can probably find him out in the community doing another sport, from basketball to ultimate frisbee.
