Menlo College signs a couple of transfers for sports programs

The Menlo College men's soccer program put the finishing touches to their 2014 recruiting class on Wednesday when Oaks coach Eric Bucchere announced the signing of Cal State Fullerton transfer David Beary.

Beary started seven games as a freshman for the Division I Titans last fall, and was also named to the Inaria All-Tournament team for his performances against Colgate, Cornell and LMU.

"We are all really excited about David, Bucchere said. "He's everything you want in a student-athlete, and he has the ability on the field to compete at the highest level."

The season gets underway on August 23 when the Oaks travel to Redding for a neutral site match with Corban University at 10 a.m.

Wrestling

Menlo College coach Joey Martinez announced a major addition to the program with the signing of the Junior College National Champion in 184 pounds: Kenny Steers.

Steers transfers to Menlo after a pair of standout seasons at Sacramento City College, where he helped the Panthers to a national championship and 12-1 team dual record; the best in program history.

Steers was one of four members of the national championship team to take home first place honors and earn All-American accolades a year ago.

"Kenny is a great addition to our wrestling program," Martinez said. "He fills a need in our roster and is a natural leader who is going to help us in the upper weights."
