Position: Sprints/Long Jump
After two dramatic Regional-qualifying performances in the long jump and 4 x 400m relay at the 2005 Big West Conference Championships, Ryan suffered a disappointing, injury-marred championship competition in 2006, though he certainly did not go out without dusting heat after heat in the 100m and 200m sprints throughout the season. Generally known for his deep jumps, Ryan proved that he could race with the big boys, blazing his way down to a personal best 10.76 in the 100m and a solid 21.74 in the 200m. This phenomenal athlete will be a Gaucho to watch in 2007 as he guns for the West Regional Championships in, potentially, four events.
2005 Track & Field Recap: Went long at the Big West Championships when he posted a long jump of 24'07". Donnelly finished 4th in a tough jumps conference and his mark was far enough to qualify for the Regional Championships where he finished 9th. Also, part of the 4x400m Big West Championship team splitting 47's.

2004 Track & Field Recap: Red-shirted his '04 campaign.

2003 Track & Field Recap: Donnelly finished seventh in the long jump at Big West and came up big in both relays anchoring the 4x100 to a season best 41.54 5th place, and splitting a 48 second leg in the 4x400 that finished second in 3:12.82.

High School: Finished sixth in the 100m and seventh in the long jump at CCS Finals in 2002.
