Colby Community College All-American Rob Monticone has signed his letter of intent to compete for Sam Houston State University next season.  Monticone, a native of El Paso, Tex. and Americas Alumnus is a five-time All-American for the Trojans. Monticone was a US Citizen All-American in the 800 meter run as a freshman and was member of the national champion 4 x 800 meter relay and Distance Medley Relay that helped lead Colby Community College to a second place team finish at the NJCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships.

“It’s going to be fun watching these guys who spent the last two years as teammates, now spending the next two years as competitors,” said Head Coach James Ortiz.

Sam Houston State University is a Division-I university located in Huntsville, Texas that competes in the Southland Conference.
