North Dakota State head men’s track and field coach Don Larson announced the addition of two student-athletes to the 2013 signing class for the Bisons on Thursday, July 18. Matthew Neururer (Motley, Minn./Pillager HS) and Brady Brockel (Mobridge, S.D./Sunshine Bible Academy) have both signed National Letters of Intent to continue their education and compete at NDSU.
The additions of Neururer and Brockel bring the total number of Bisons men’s track & field signees in 2013 to 10.
Brockel won South Dakota Class B state titles in the 400m and 800m as a senior in 2013 and was named the Class B MVP of the state meet. In 2012, he ran on relay teams that won conference, region and state championships in the 4×400 and 4×800, and he placed at the state meet in both relays again in 2013.
Brockel set the Sunshine Bible Academy school record in the 400m at 49.37 and has also run 1:58 in the 800m. He earned all-conference honorable mention honors in football playing wide receiver and quarterback and was a second-team all-conference pick as his team’s leading scorer in basketball.
The North Dakota State men’s track & field team has won four consecutive Summit League outdoor titles and four of the last six Summit League indoor titles.
