April 7, 2011

LARAMIE, Wyo. - The Wyoming Cowboy track and field program has added a key piece to next year's puzzle, after it announced Thursday the signing of Kyle Sullivan for the fall.

Sullivan, a product of Powell, Wyo., is projected to be a decathlete. A two-time state title winner in Wyoming's Class 3A, Sullivan could be a contributor in several events next year.

Some of Sullivan's top marks include a 6-foot-6-inch mark in high jump, 8.40 seconds in the 60-meter hurdles, 14.65 seconds in the 110-meter hurdles and 39.25 seconds in the 300-meter hurdles.

His intended major is exercise and sports science.

"We are very excited to have Kyle stay in state and become a Cowboy," Wyoming assistant coach Quincy Howe said. "He has had an excellent high school career which includes two state 3A titles in the high jump, as well as a fifth-place finish at the prestigious Simplot Games in the 60-meter hurdles.

"Kyle has also shown a lot of versatility during his high school career, including duty at the 300-meter hurdles, as well as the 4-by-400-meter relay. He is a strong, big athlete and we project him to be a key contributor in the heptathlon and decathlon, as well as the high jump and hurdles. Kyle is a welcome addition to the Cowboy stable."
