MINNEAPOLIS  (GopherSports.com) – Two-time All-American and five-time Big Ten champion Keita Cline has been named to this year’s class of inductees for the University of Minnesota “M” Club Hall of Fame. This year’s class will be officially inducted into the Hall of Fame at a ceremony in the DQ Club Room at TCF Bank Stadium on Oct. 9 at 6 p.m.

Cline was an exceptional long-jumper and triple-jumper for the Gophers from 1992-1995, winning five Big Ten championships in those events. As a senior in 1995, Cline won both the Big Ten indoor and outdoor long jump title as well as the indoor triple jump, his third championship in the event in four years. Cline was a two-time All-American at Minnesota before competing for the British Virgin Islands at both the 1996 and 2000 Summer Olympics.

The All-American still holds four school records at the University of Minnesota – the indoor triple jump (16.16 meters, 53-00.25 ft.), the indoor long jump (7.97 meters, 26-01.75 ft.), the outdoor triple jump (16.18 meters, 53-01 ft.) and the outdoor long jump (8.12 meters, 26-07.75 ft.).

One of 13 members of this year’s Hall of Fame class, Cline is joined by Laura Halldorson, Quincy Lewis, Tanya Schuh, Bernie Zeruhn, Bill Light, Pat Micheletti, Kari Blank, George Tuck, Frank McCormick and Bob Hanning. With the addition of 13 new inductees in this year’s class, the “M” Club Hall of Fame now has 319 members representing student-athletes from 27 different varsity sports, as well as coaches and administrators.
