NEWARK VALLEY — Connor Yetter is preparing to take on quite the workload when he heads to the Rochester Institute of technology this fall. The Newark Halley senior plans on competing in cross country and track & field while also studying Electrical Engineering Technology.
He made it official when he signed a National Letter of Intent here Friday afternoon during a ceremony which saw seven other Cardinal student-athletes ink letters as well.
Yetter chose RIT, "because the athletics mixed with the academics fit my passions. They also have great facilities and an electric engineering program."
He believes he has plenty to offer the Tigers.
"I feel I have to offer leadership, work ethic and experience," he said.
Yetter hopes to gain valuable insight through both an education and athletics while at RIT.
"Academically — more knowledge in the field of engineering," he said. "Athletically — I hope to learn how to better keep my body fit, as well as pursue future running careers."

Connor has been a 4-year starter for the Cardinals in both cross country and track. He was a multiple time IAC all-star in both sports and was voted the IAC sportsmanship award winner for cross country this year. Connor has been a 3-year cross country captain and a valuable team leader on a team that has been state-ranked for the past three years.
