Weed High School grad Max Michelon competed at the 2016 NorCal Multi Championships last week at Hartnell College, finishing in 7th place for the Decathlon. Below are COS Eagles Coach Les Courtemanche’s comments about Michelon’s performance.
Max came into the competition as an alternate seeded 12th. I told Max at the beginning of the competition that it is an honor to even compete at a championship competition let alone be able to get top-8 and receive points. I told him to go out there and have some fun and enjoy the day along with the field of competitors from across the North State. Full Article

Congrats to College of the Siskiyous 2013-2014 All-American javelin thrower Alex Henderson (69.91m)! Alex signed his letter of intent with Azusa Pacific University on May 20, 2015.
On May 27, 2015, College of the Siskiyous Freshman Elijah Marta signed a national letter of intent to the University of Kentucky. He will be joining the Wildcats this fall in hopes of making it to the 2016 NCAA finals in the javelin event.
Last season, under Coach Shannon Maas, the College of the Siskiyous Track and Field Team set several school records, including California Community College State Champion Alex Hendersons 229' 1" javelin throw. This season, Maas is coaching at Southern Oregon, but the Eagles havent skipped a beat under new Coach Les Courtemanche, especially in the throwing events.
In the javelin, Kelsey Shaw is currently number-one in the nation for all junior colleges, and ranks among the top-five in the nation for all divisions, including NCAA D-1. Shaws throw of 50.69 (166'4") at the Sac State Invite two weeks ago set a meet record, and qualified her to throw in the Pan-Am Games this summer in Toronto Canada, where she plans to compete, according to Courtemanche.
