Tadesse commits to SFU

Ephraim Tadesse has committed to the Simon Fraser University track and field team and will join the Clan next the fall.

Currently a student at North Surrey Secondary, Tadesse competes in the 800m, 1,500m and 3,000m events, and will run cross country at Simon Fraser (SFU).

“I wanted to find a good solid program that was local and SFU joining the NCAA was a big factor,” said Tadesse. “My coach is close to the program and the school is great academically.”

At the 2010 BC Summer Games in Langley, Tadesse won gold medals in the 1,500metre in the 3000m events. He is also a former medalist at the BC High School championships, having won a bronze in the 1,500m as a Grade 9 student.

“He is a great kid,” said SFU coach Scott Svelander.

“He’s a team leader and his positive attitude is contagious. He brings a positive tone and is very talented.”
