Head track and field coach Del Hessel announced that the Colorado State University track and field team signed Chantelle Dron of Candia, N.H. and Kristi Welty of Eastlake, Ohio to National Letters of Intent on Thursday.

Dron, a middle-distance runner, is a specialist in the 800 and 1500 meters and is a Foot Locker Finalist in cross country. She holds a personal best of 2:09.2 in the 800 while holding a best time of 4:22.03 in the 1500. These times rank in the top five nationally in each event. She is home schooled and runs for Coach Mick Grant of Lynx Elite Athletics.

“Cantelle is arguably one of the best female mid-distance runners in the history of the program,” commented Hessel. “She has the talent to compete at the collegiate level immediately and will be a nice addition to our roster.”

Welty, a thrower, placed third at state as a junior in the discus for Eastlake North High School. She holds the district and school records with a throw of 148-3 in the event.

“Kristi is a very strong athlete and should be able to help us out right away,” commented CSU throwing coach Brian Bedard. “She shows very good potential in the weight and hammer throws as well.”
