Track and field signs four athletes

Four new signees joined the TCU track & field team as the program prepares for Big 12 competition, head track & field coach Darryl Anderson said.

Ronnie Baker, from Louisville, Ky., and Harvey McSwain II, from Shelby, N.C., were two additions to the team that would keep the sprinting events strong, Anderson said.

“Historically it has been the face of the program at TCU, and I think those two guys will assist us in continuing on that path,” he said.

Both Baker and McSwain had a great range and were able to sprint 100-meter to 400-meter events, he said. They were hard workers on the track and in the classroom.

Baker’s personal best was 10.57 seconds in the 100-meter event and 47.24 seconds in the 400-meter. McSwain holds a personal best of 10.55 seconds in the 100-meter and 21.18 seconds in the 200-meter.

Magdalena Escobar, from Springtown will assist the Horned Frogs in becoming a better distance and cross country team, Anderson said.

Escobar had a personal best of 10:54.44 for the 3200-meter event. She is the first recruit for head cross country coach Liz Wort who joined the program in August.

Jordan Moore, from Lithonia, Ga., is going to be a two-sport athlete, competing in both track and football at TCU.

Anderson said Moore was one of the top hurdlers in the country. Moore’s personal best in the 55-meter hurdles was 7.28 seconds.

He said Moore would have a lot on his plate balancing two sports, school work and social life, but he seemed like the type of young man who was up for the task and ready to handle it.

Anderson said the quality of each athlete’s character stood out in the recruiting process.

“I am excited about every one of them,” Anderson said. “I am looking forward to seeing them blossom and grow from young adults to adults in the classroom and on the track.”

He said he thought the athletes would quickly adjust to the university’s track & field team and its efforts of transforming into a Big 12 team.
