After a critical and gutsy surprise performance at the 2006 Big West Conference Championships, John looks to take the lead as the premiere javelin thrower in the conference. Having transferred from UC San Diego, John joined the Gauchos midway through the season and managed to step up and fill a key role, finishing a solid fourth place at last year's conference championships, invigorating his teammates and the entire javelin competition. Having already nearly surpassed the West Regional qualifying mark in an exhibition meet in December, John looks to get his feet on the podium this year, as well as be amongst the first to earn a ticket to Oregon for the West Regionals. His 194'-03" bomb last season is the 10th all-time mark at UCSB.
