Cory Bunker signs with Southern Utah

Monticello High School senior Cory Bunker recently signed a letter of intent to run for the Southern Utah University (SUU) Thunderbird cross country and track and field teams.

The university is located in Cedar City, UT.

The senior is set to close out a successful career running for the Monticello Buckaroos during the track and field season this spring.

Bunker finished third at Utah State Cross Country meets in each of the last three seasons, his sophomore, junior, and senior years.

He helped the Buckaroos to a state cross country championship in 2018, a state track and field championship in 2019, and a track and field second place finish in 2018.

Bunker has also been an integral part of four Region 19 titles, two each for cross country and track in 2017-18 and 2018-19.

SUU has been a top-25 NCAA Division I team for around a decade. The Thunderbirds are currently ranked just outside the top 25, in the 26th position.
