Oregon Tech Adds Nine to Track & Field Squad
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech track & field coach Jack Kegg continues to reinforce both the men’s and women’s track squads for the upcoming 2013 campaign, with the recent addition of nine athletes to the men’s and women’s track and field roster this spring.
Signing NAIA National Letters of Intents include Ariel Koos of Scio, Ore.; Kylee Bruder of Crescent City, Calif.; Moriah Trumbull of Klamath Falls, Ore.; Shannelle Cayetano of Clackamas, Ore.; and Michelle Flanner of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho - to round off the women. On the men’s side is Mason Manera of Liahue, Hawaii; Zane Stapleton of Portland, Ore.; Conlan Steward of Fossil, Ore. and Adam Allen of Albany, Ore.
“Along with this group, we have added quality athletes over the past few weeks to some areas that we needed to address.” Kegg said. "This has been a great start to deepen our pool of talent on both sides of our program.”
Cayetano (Portland Christian HS) was the 2012 2A State champion in the women’s pole vault (10-9) and will also add to the sprints. Bruder (Del Norte HS), expected to make an immediate impact at the conference and national level over the next few years, also competes in the pole vault (10-0), and went 5-4 in the high jump. Koos (East Linn Christian HS) will add strength to Owls’ underclass in both the long jump (16-6) and triple jump (32-8) events. Flannery, who will also play on the Owl volleyball squad, brings athleticism to the great tradition of multi event athletes at Tech. The incoming freshman will compete in the high jump (5-2), long jump (15-0) and 400 meter race (62.02). Trumbull, recently competing at Triad in Klamath Falls, will compete in the 100 and 200 meter races.
On the men’s side the Owls added a transfer and three incoming freshman. Steward (Condon HS), is a 400 meter state champion and will likely run both the 400 and 200 at Tech. Manera (Kauai HS), focusing on the 100 and 200 meter races, should provide the Owls with another good relay option, while incoming freshman Adam Allen will add depth to the hurdle group where the South Albany graduate comes in at 15.64 in the 110 hurdles and 40.92 in the 300 hurdle competition. Stapleton, a pole vaulter, heads to Tech from Lane CC where the junior went 14-5.25 in the event.
