Dickinson State University announced the signing of Richard Brumbaugh, a 2007 graduate of Libby High School.

Brumbaugh was All-state in the javelin and shot put in helping Libby to the State championship. He is also expected to play linebacker on the football team.

Of this years' recruiting class, Head Coach Pete Stanton comments, "We are very excited about the 24 individuals we have signed to join our track programs. We feel they will give us a lot more depth in a few areas, and meet some needs for us in some areas, especially in the throwing events. They join a team that has a lot of returning athletes back, so we are obviously excited about our 2008 season.

"Our women are getting very close at the conference level and have now made some breakthrough at the national level as well with our first top 20 finish in 2007.

"The men that have signed will help add to our men's team that has many returners back, and will fill in a few needed areas in the throws. Recruiting is a never ending process so we expect to sign several more athletes by the time school starts in August. We should have from 6-10 athletes added to this 2008 class within the next month."

Dickinson State's men's team won the NAIA National Championship in 2004, 2005 and 2006 and was the runner-up school in 2003 and 2007.
