Brandt Signs with Doane

Trystan Brandt is surrounded by his parents, Roger and Dianne Brandt.  Behind are Doane University Coach Ed Fye (left) and Exeter-Milligan Coach Brian Murphy.

Trystan Brandt likes to get a jump on things, and by jump we mean long jump.

Brandt holds the school record at Exeter-Milligan for long jump (21’03.5”) and triple jump (42’08.25”) and brought home silver medals from Burke last year.

On Wednesday, March 08, 2017 Brandt signed a letter of intent to join the track and field team at Doane University.

Coach Fye welcomed him to the team, “He will fit right in with the other kids from Exeter.”

He noted the success that Brandt had at the state track meet last year and the interaction he has shared with Brandt at some of the Doane camps, “When you do things like that (medal at state) you are doing the right thing.  Trystan is a good character kid which is what we are looking for on our team.”
Fye plans to have Brandt focus on his jumping, “He might be doing a little bit of hurdles.  We bring kids in and they have their specialty events.  With 150 kids on the team we don’t have to spread them as thin as they do in high school.”

At Exeter-Milligan Brandt appreciated that he “was able to try out a bunch of different events to see what I was good at.”

Exeter-Milligan head track coach Brian Murphy sees successful for Brandt at Doane, “He will work hard, he is a coachable athlete and has natural abilities running and jumping.”

Brandt is looking forward to the experience, “It will be a challenge going from a small school to a lot of people and getting used to a strict training regimen.”

Murphy is confident in Brandt’s success on the playing field and in the classroom.  “Trystan has taken advantage of what is offered at Exeter-Milligan. He has been successful in the classroom. Also, his success has carried over into a wide variety of extra-curricular activities he has been involved in here.”

Brandt plans to major in computer science and environmental science while at Doane.
