Flyin' Frogs Ink Three to National Letters of Intent
April 23, 2003
The TCU track & field program has signed three athletes to national letters of intent in the latest signing period, according to Horned Frog head track & field coach Monte Stratton. These athletes will join the 10 newcomers who signed national letters of intent last November to comprise an outstanding class of track athletes.
"Along with the group we signed last fall, we think we've put together a very strong class," said Stratton. "We were able to fill some holes and add depth to both squads. I think the future looks very bright for TCU track, both on the men's and women's sides."
Chaime Breaux, a senior at Killeen Ellison (Texas) High School, was the number one ranked prep at 60 meters during the 2003 indoor season after clocking a 6.73 time at the University of Houston All Comers meet in February. He finished fifth in the 60-meter dash at the Nike Indoor Championships as a junior. He is also an accomplished jumper, having surpassed 24 feet in the long jump and has flirted with the 50-foot barrier in the triple jump.
Che' Chavez will join the Frogs in the fall following the completion of his high school career at Poly Prep in Brooklyn, New York. Chavez has recorded an indoor 200 meter best of 21.80 and a 400 meter indoor best of 49.38.
The women's team will add Marquita Davis from Memphis (Tenn.) East High School. Davis helped her squad to a second place finish at the Class AAA state meet by finishing first in the 400 (55.70) and second in the 200 in 2002. Her high school team won both the city and sectional team titles. She also runs for the Memphis Track Club.
In the fall, the Frogs signed Mark Jelks (Gary, Indiana), Chris Jones (Wallace State College), Brett Wilson (Wallace State College) and Erick Wilson (Barton County, Kan. Community College) on the men's side. They inked MaKeatha Cooper (Grandview, Missouri), McKale Davis (Fairfax, Oklahoma), Debora Jones (Portland, Oregon), Jamee Jones (Alief, Texas), Kandra Lakey (Roby, Texas) and Calandra Stewart (Houston) for the women's squad.
