2012 Olympian joins NDSU track and field staff
Trevor Barry, a 2012 London Olympian and the bronze medalist at the 2011 World Championships in the high jump, joins the NDSU track and field coaching staff as an assistant coach for the 2013 season. Barry will direct NDSU student-athletes in the high jump, long jump and triple jump.
“Trevor brings a wealth of experience and a great deal of passion to our program. Our jumpers will have the opportunity to learn from one of the best in the world,” said Ryun Godfrey, head women’s coach.
“We’re thrilled to have Trevor joining our staff,” noted Don Larson, head men’s coach. “He brings a wealth of knowledge in the sport of track and field and in the jumping events. His national and international competition experience will certainly add to our staff.”
“I am excited to be at NDSU,” said Barry. “I think it’s going to be a learning experience, and I’m looking forward to working with the athletes. They have a lot of talent, and I am hoping to share some of my knowledge with them.”
Barry competed collegiately at Dickinson State University, where he set the school high jump and long jump records in 2006. He holds the Bison Sports Arena high jump record of 7-03.00, set in 2008, as well as the Shelly Ellig Indoor Facility record of 7-02.50.
Barry is married to Heather (Zander) Barry, a 2010 NCAA All-American in the heptathlon for North Dakota State.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
