NNU Track: State Champs, Record Holders Joining Crusaders
Published: 7/21/2015 5:03:26 PM
 

NAMPA, Idaho — Already one of the top programs in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, the Crusader women’s track and field team just continues to get better and better.

Northwest Nazarene head coach John Spatz is pleased to announce the addition of junior college transfer Lauren Davis along with freshmen Brooklyn Daylong, Miranda Hagadorn, Jacquelyn Mahowald, Jordan Morris, Nicole Nobbs and Shayli Siegfreid, all of whom add depth and talent to an array of star student-athletes who will compete for NNU during the 2015-16 indoor and outdoor track and field seasons.

Davis, who will be a junior at NNU after competing two years at Shasta College in California, will compete in the multi-events along with incoming freshman, Morris.

Daylong, Hagadorn and Nobbs will be freshmen throwers for the Crusaders, Mahowald with be a freshman competing in jumps, and Siegfreid, who will play volleyball for NNU this fall, will be a freshman sprinter in track and field.

“All of them understand what it means to be a Crusader,” NNU’s head coach said. “We look forward to them arriving on campus this fall as we look forward to another successful year.”

The seven new recruits join hurdler and jumper Katie Conklin, who signed last fall, and distance runners Josie Lonia, Sierra Manzer, Rachel Roach and Emily Hammons, who all will compete in cross country, bring the total number of new additions to the Crusader track and field team to 12.

 

Here is a look at the newest members of the Crusader track & field team:

BROOKLYN DAYLONG (VALLIVUE HS IN CALDWELL, IDAHO)

The recent Falcon graduate joins the Crusaders after a senior season that saw her make Idaho state history with the longest discus throw in the 5A ranks of 152 feet, 2 inches.

The two-time 5A state champion in discus also was second in the shot put as a senior, and turned in a career-best mark of 40-10 as a junior in that event.

A two-sport athlete at Vallivue, Daylong was a First Team All-Southern Idaho Conference catcher for the Falcon softball team as a junior, and in the classroom the Vallivue Valedictorian also earned the Idaho Dairymen Distinguished Student Award, the AP Scholar Award and U.S. Army Reserves National Scholar Athlete Award.

“Brooklyn will explore the heptathlon, along with her other core events this next season,” Spatz said. “She is one of the most motivated, hard working student-athletes I have seen in a while. We look for her to make an immediate impact in the GNAC, and perhaps on the national level, as well.”

 

 

LAUREN DUVAL (SHASTA COLLEGE & FOOTHILLS HS IN PALO CEDRO, CALIF.)

The lone junior college transfer in this year’s recruiting class, Duval is a talented multi-event athlete who finished seventh at the NorCal Combined Championships with a score of 3,540 points in the heptathlon earlier this spring.

The Foothills High School product also will be a strong competitor in the hurdles and high jump for the Crusaders, as she clocked a time of 16.23 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles this past season and cleared 4 feet, 11.75 inches in the high jump, claiming the Golden Valley Conference title in both events.

“Lauren will compete in the heptathlon, as well as other open events for us this coming season as she joins a talented group of multi-eventers here at NNU,” Spatz said.

“She also is a talented vocal performer, and Lauren was drawn to NNU for the ability to continue her love of singing and athletics in a school that supports both opportunities. “Lauren is an outstanding person and I couldn’t be happier that she joins our Crusader family.”

 

MIRANDA HAGADORN (COLUMBIA HS IN NAMPA, IDAHO)

A state medalist in the shot put and also a power-lifter, Hagadorn stays close to home as she joins the Crusader team from Columbia HS.

As a junior, she placed eighth in the shot at the 4A Idaho State Championships, then stepping up to the highest level of high school competition in Idaho, she placed sixth in the shot this past spring at the 5A state meet.

She turned in a season-best throw of 37 feet, 4 inches at the 5A District III Championships to earn her spot at state this spring, and her career-long mark is 37-9.25.

She also competes in the discus and had a career-best mark of 105-9 in that event this past season.

“I am very happy that Miranda will be joining the lady throwers here at NNU this next year,” Spatz said. “She is exactly the type of person and athlete that we look for. We look for Miranda to make progress in both the discus and shot, while picking up the hammer and weight throws this season.”

 

JACQUELYN MAHOWALD (LAKESIDE HS IN NINE MILE FALLS, WASH.)

A two-time 1A Washington state champion in the triple jump, Mahowald will add depth to the Crusader sprint and jump squads.

The two-sport athlete, who ran cross country as a sophomore and junior and played basketball all four years at Lakeside High, Mahowald won the triple jump as a junior with a career-best mark of 38 feet, 8.5 inches, then repeated in that event as a senior with a leap of 36-5.75.

Along with being team captain for track and field as a senior, she also helped Lakeside’s cross country team to the 1A state title as a junior and the school’s basketball team to the state championship game this past winter.

“The future looks bright for this talented jumper,” Spatz said. “Jackie had a number of outstanding choices to continue her college career, so to have her with us next year is amazing. It looks to be a really fun year in the jumps in 2016.”   

 

JORDAN MORRIS (EAGLE HS IN EAGLE, IDAHO)

A four-event medalist at this spring’s 5A Idaho State Championship meet, the Eagle High product will add depth to the Crusader hurdles, jumps and multi-event squads.

An Academic Award winner who maintained a 3.5 GPA or better for three straight years in the classroom, the Mustangs’ Field Event Athlete of the Year set career-bests in the 100-meter hurdles (15.44 seconds), long jump (18 feet) and triple jump (35 feet, 5.5 inches) this spring, placing in the top six in each of those events to medal at the 5A state meet.

Her best finish was third in the long jump at state with a mark of 17-3.75, and she added a fourth-place finish in the 300 hurdles (46.66) at state.

She also has cleared a career-best of 5-2 in the high jump.

“Jordan will be a huge addition to the squad this next season,” Spatz said. “Look for her to compete in the heptathlon along with her other main events.” 

 

NICOLE NOBBS (RIVERSIDE CHRISTIAN HS IN YAKIMA, WASH.)

A 1B Washington state champion this past spring in the javelin and 4x100-meter relay, Nobbs was a two-sport star who will bolster the Crusaders throwing squad.

Along with winning two state titles as a senior, Nobbs turned in a career-best mark of 137 feet, 2 inches in the javelin as a junior at Riverside Christian.

She also was the All-League MVP and Total Release Award winner, for inspirational leadership, in volleyball.

In the classroom, she was a member of the National Honor Society, the student body publicist at Riverside Christian and won the Outstanding Student Award in Civics, AP English and Art.

“We look for Nicole to be a versatile performer who will have a solid impact on the GNAC as a freshman and to challenge the NCAA provisional mark (132-5) in 2016 in the javelin,” Spatz said. “Nicole will help to continue the success of the women’s throwing squad here at NNU. I am very happy that Nicole will be a part of the Crusader family next season.”

 

SHAYLI SIEGFREID (HIGHLANDS RANCH HS IN HIGHLANDS RANCH, COLO.)

A star volleyball player who will compete this fall for the Crusaders on the hardwood, Siegfreid will stay busy during the winter and spring competing in the sprints for NNU.

On the track, Siegfreid qualified for the 5A Colorado state meet in the 100 meters and ran the 4x100, 4x200 and 800 sprint medley relays for the Falcons.

She qualified in three or more events for the state meet as a sophomore, junior and senior, and was voted a team MVP. Her career-best mark of 12.45 seconds in the 100 also is sixth-fastest all-time at Highlands Ranch.

A First-Team All-State volleyball player, Siegfreid was named the Female Athlete of the Year and a Scholar Athlete three years in a row at Highlands Ranch.

“Coming off injuries her junior year, Shayli knocked off over a second in the 200 meters running a season best of 25.96 in 2015,” Spatz said. “In the 100 meters she was over a half second better in 2015.

“I have greatly enjoyed getting to know Shayli during the recruiting process and am very excited to see her join our sprint and relay squad for the 2016 season.”
