SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – The Master’s College men’s cross country & track programs have signed Tesoro High School’s Taylor Koh.  A Santa Margarita native, Koh is currently finishing his senior season with the Titans and looks forward to competing with the Mustangs in the fall of 2013.

IMG_3781.JPGKoh, who was a 2012 CIF cross country finalist, enters The Master’s College with a background highlighted by earning Tesoro’s Titan Award for cross country, time spent as a captain for both cross country and track, and being a part of an undefeated 2011-12 Sea View League squad.  Koh is also a recipient of the school’s Torch of Excellence award and a member on the Academic Honor Roll.

The newest member of the Mustang distance family chose The Master’s College for “the Christ-centered classrooms, people, and community that the college exhibits.”

“It was an easy choice for me because of the biblical aspect of the college, which will help me grow not only physically and mentally, but spiritually as well,” said Koh. “I am looking forward to running cross country, learning and growing in each of my classes, and making solid friendships.”

Distance squad head coach Zach Schroeder also has goals for Koh.

“Taylor is someone we’re looking forward to developing as a vital part of the team,” said Schroeder.  “He [Koh] has had a dream to run at the collegiate level, and we’re excited to work with him and have him a part of our program.  I’m excited to see him progress not just next season, but over the course of the blocks of season that will ultimately lead to his best.”

Koh is expected to toe the line with the entire Mustang distance team in the fall for cross country, and compete in the 5K for track in the spring.
