BISMARCK (UTN) – Standing Rock Cross Country runner Robin Iron Shield has signed a letter of intent to attend United Tribes Technical College and run for the Thunderbirds in 2008.
Iron Shield, 19, a graduate of Solon High School, Solon, ND, finished sixth in the Class B division of the North Dakota High School Cross Country meet.
He is the son of Adrian Iron Shield and Wanda Stretches, Cannonball, ND.
"He's a runner of natural ability," said Scott Davis, newly appointed UTTC Cross Country coach.
Iron Shield finished third in the Class B two-mile run of the North Dakota State High School Track meet with a time of 9:48. He won the 10K run of the Thunderbird Half-Marathon in 2007.
