Joshua Calbert, a graduate of Fremont High of Oakland, has signed a letter-of-intent for Division II powerhouse Central Missouri’s Track and Field team. Calbert, who picked Central Missouri over Louisiana Tech, New Mexico and Texas-El Paso, is the first track athlete to be recruited from the west coast to the Warrensburg, Missouri college.

“I really love their entire athletic program,” Calbert said. “They compete for the Division II championships every year and it will be a great experience to be a part of it.”
Central Missouri was the runner-up for the Director’s Cup, given annually to the top Division II athletics program.
Calbert joins the Mules program after spending two seasons at City College San Francisco and is expected to compete in the 400-meter dash as well as the 4×100 and 4×400 relay teams.
He will have two years left for the Mules outdoor track team and three years left for the indoor season. Calbert already has high personal and team expectations for the next two years.
“I want to make it to the national championships in both years while helping the team to try to win the national title,” Calbert added. “My biggest goal out there will be to graduate with a degree in kinesiology.”
