Tebben To Run For Defenders

(Tuesday, January 8; Sioux Center, Iowa) Davis Tebben, a senior at Lansing Christian School (Michigan), has announced his intention to attend Dordt College and join the Defender cross country and track programs.

Tebben has personal bests of 4:36 in the mile; 16:23 in the 5,000 meters and 10:23 in the two mile.  He was an all-state selection twice and earned first-team all-conference honors three times.  He placed fifth in the state cross country meet as a sophomore.

"I am very excited to welcome Davis to Defender Nation.  Davis will have a strong impact on our Cross Country team and distance track crew.  He is a student of his running.  He is driven to learn how to train better and race stronger.  That drive has led him to have some great high school success on the course, on the track, and in the classroom.  That drive will also help him to contribute right away to our programs and to the great campus community as well.  Additionally, he will be a fantastic teammate.  I look forward to working with him and watching him develop over the next four years," said Dordt College cross country coach and assistant track coach Nate Wolf.

Davis is the son of Dave and Marlene Tebben of Lansing, Michigan.  He plans to study Civil Engineering at Dordt College.
