Riverside, Calif. - The cross-country program is happy to announce their first signee to the 2017 class. Gauge Hill has signed a letter-of-intent to attend La Sierra University and run on the men's cross-country team. Hill plans to study towards a degree in Business while attending La Sierra University.
Hill recently graduated from Yucca Valley High School where he was an honor roll student for all four years of his high school career. Two other academic awards he received include the Energizer Bunny Award (AVID) and a Scholar-Athlete Award (Marines). In addition to his work in the classroom, he also worked hard in the track. He competed in Track and Field, for the Trojans, his sophomore through his senior years. During his sophomore season he topped out at a 6:30 mile, but this past season he achieved a personal record with a 4:52 mile, in helping lead his team to De Anza League title.
We would like to welcome Gauge to the Golden Eagles family and to the greater La Sierra University community.
