Claymont Runner Signs with Cross Country and Track & Field Teams
Kent State University at Tuscarawas is announcing the signing of a Claymont High School graduating senior to their cross country team. On April 29, Montanna Stubbins signed a Letter of Intent to run for the Kent State Tuscarawas Golden Eagles Cross Country and Track & Field Teams.
Stubbins is a four-year letter winner in track and field and a three-year letter winner in cross country for the Mustangs. She was a regional qualifier in the 4x100 and 4x200 meter relay teams in her junior year, along with being named the Top Mustang Sprinter the same season. She received an East Central Ohio League (ECOL) Honorable Mention for cross country and is ranked in the all-time top 10 list of Claymont sprinters in the 100 and 200 meter dashes in school history. She is also a multi-sport athlete having played basketball as well.
“Montanna’s signing is part of a long list of Claymont runners that have agreed to come to our campus and we are really glad to have her onboard,” said Mark Albaugh, Head Cross Country and Track & Field Coach for Kent State Tuscarawas. “She is one of those explosive dash runners in track and is very a persistent runner in cross who settles into a comfortable pace and then starts passing runners one at a time until she gets to the front of the pack. Her addition to our cross country team definitely makes us a viable threat to capture meet titles and hopefully a national championship, while her speed in track will carry us a long way as well.”
Kent State Tuscarawas is a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA).
