GLENDIVE - Rapelje's Chase Keating has signed his National Letter of Intent with Dawson Community College to compete with the Buccaneer Track & Field Team this fall.

“Chase is going to be a huge asset to our team. He has a lot of potential and with increased strength and power he will be hitting new PR’s consistently," said Bucs' head coach Alex Chase. "We are excited to continue to grow the track and field program, and with Chase joining us, I know we will excel not only on the track next year, but in the field too.”
