Brooks Signs Another Beast In Division II Star David Ribich

Brooks has added another Beast to its roster. 

Today, the Seattle-based track club announced the signing of NCAA Division II superstar David Ribich. During his time at Western Oregon, he won three national titles and knocked 18 seconds off his 1500m collegiate best to arrive at a 3:37.35 PR, which he set at this year's Bryan Clay Invitational. Last year, he made his first appearance at a USATF National Championship meet, where he qualified for the final

Ribich will make his professional debut this weekend at the Portland Track Festival in the high performance 800m on Sunday. 

"This whole year has been an incredible year of running under Western Oregon," Ribich said. "In December, I had a chat with Coach Mackey and knew this was a hard group to pass on. After my eligibility ended this May, I knew Brooks was the option; however, I wanted to still explore with other groups and companies before finalizing a decision. With the help of Total Sports, coaching staff, my family, and teammates, I knew Brooks was where I could see myself succeeding. Advice I have for collegians looking for the next step is ask the hard questions, think what’s best for you and your training on and off the track, and have fun. It’s an exciting time, and I’m excited to represent Brooks in my professional career."

"I watched David last year at USAs and was interested immediately," said Danny Mackey, Brooks Beasts head coach. "When we had our visit and I spoke to his coach Mike Johnson, it was a simple choice in my mind. David has a positive approach and confidence in himself, and I hope he'll enjoy a long career with the Beasts."

Ribich joins a crew that includes another former Division II stud, 2018 800m world indoor silver medalist Drew Windle, who competed for Ashland University from 2011-2015.
