GREAT FALLS — New University of Providence track and field coach Tony Arntson will bring a familiar face to the Argos, after Arntson announced the signing of former Helena High sprinter Zander Mozer. Arntson coached Mozer at HHS.

Mozer captured a pair of individual state titles his senior season in 2017, winning the 200-meter dash in 21.74 and the 400-meter dash in 47.52. Each time set a new Helena High School record, while the 47.52 set a new all-class state record, breaking former teammate Connor Matthews’ 47.75 from the prior season.

Mozer placed second in the 100 and helped Helena High to fourth- and fifth-place finishes in the 400- and 1,600-meter relays, respectively. He finished with a State AA meet-high 29.5 points, leading the Bengals to a third-place finish.

“This is a huge sign for the University of Providence. Zander is a great track athlete, a tremendous teammate and a high-quality young man,” Arntson said in a Providence release. “I am very excited to have the opportunity to be a part of Zander’s life again. I want to thank all the wonderful people at the University of Providence for helping our program make this happen.”

Mozer will compete in the 100, 200 and 400, while also long jumping, according to Arntson. He will study Criminology at UP.
