BOURBON — Triton senior Trenton Stackhouse has signed on to continue his cross country and track careers next fall at Indiana State University.
Stackhouse has been a standout since junior high and has continued his winning ways through high school, earning a competitive name for himself among area teams and coaches.
A versatile athlete competing in everything from 400-meter track events to 5,000-meter cross country races, Stackhouse entertained numerous opportunities from NAIA, Division I, II, and III schools — including the University of Texas and the University of Florida — but decided to stay in the hoosier state and run for the coaching staff at ISU in Terra Haute. ISU has a long-tenured staff with a solid reputation of success, and the Sycamores are well suited to continue developing the Trojan harrier in the coming seasons.
While at Triton, Stackhouse has advanced with his squad to the regional level the past four cross country seasons and also has three straight appearances at the Kokomo Track Regional.
He is training now to advance in the hope of advancing a fourth straight year and ultimately pushing through to the state meet this spring.
Stackhouse has also received numerous awards the past four years, including All-Northern State Conference honors and team MVP and Varsity High Point Runner awards while representing the Triton community.
Stackhouse has been coached the past four years by cross country coach Wes Rettinger and track and field coach Curt Kreft. He is the son of David and Susan Stackhouse of Bourbon.
