LEWISTON, Idaho – Warrior Track and Field announced two additions to the 2024 roster in Macey Gunderson and Luke Mastroberardino. Mastroberardino will join the Warriors from Lewiston High School, and Gunderson hails from Mountain Home, Idaho.
Gunderson prepped at Mountain Home High School where she earned top-10 finishes at the state meet in the medley relay, 200m and 400m. She holds personal-bests of 12.74 in the 100m, 25.94 in the 200m and 59.53 in the 400m. Gunderson was voted the school’s Sports Person of the Year along with all-conference accolades.
“Excited to add her to our sprints and long sprints group,” Head Coach Mike Collins said. “We struggled at times this year with depth, especially with needing to fill out some relays and stretching some of our girls too thin, and Macey will come in and be able to fill that role very quickly on race day, as well as a role of helping to push others to be better. She has a huge upside in her potential and we are looking forward to helping her find it.”
Mastroberardino is a Lewiston native that graduate from LHS in June. He was the district champion in the 300m hurdles and qualified for the state meet in the 400m, 110m hurdles, 300m hurdles, triple jump and 4x400m relay. The incoming freshman holds personal-bests of 40.09 in the 300m hurdles and 41’7.75” in the triple jump. He ranks third all-time at LHS in both events. Also an accomplished swimmer, Mastroberardino was the Idaho State Runner-Up in the 50m and 100m freestyle.
“We could not be happier with bringing another Bengal into our program,” Collins said. “Coach Stuffle has done an amazing job at developing these kids throughout their high school careers and keeping them fresh so we can continue the work he has started. Luke is only going to get better now that his focus is only on track. We see him as a 400m hurdler, triple jumper and very likely going to be among the core of guys we have that are battling to be on the 1600m relay. Great kid and we have no doubt he will represent his community, his family and our program to the highest standards possible.”
