CU is quickly becoming Steeplechase U. Jenny Barringer Simpson (Econ,PolSci’09) won NCAA 3,000-meter steeplechase titles in 2006, 2008 and 2009, and junior Emma Coburn claimed victories in the event this year at both the NCAA meet and the USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships.
What Buff-turned-assistant-coach placed first this year in the steeplechase at the USATF meet?
Billy Nelson (EthnSt’08) placed first. In addition, sophomore Shalaya Kipp proved she’s another up-and-comer in the event by placing third in the NCAA steeplechase after finishing fifth in the race as a freshman.
Can a booster/donor help pay for a prospect to attend CU sports camps or clinics?
No. A booster/donor may not assist a prospect or his/her family in paying to attend CU sports camps or clinics. Monetarily supporting a prospect’s athletic endeavors is considered an extra benefit and contrary to NCAA rules.
