Head coach Bert Rogers on Peter:

"Mathew had a great senior season at Saint Thomas More and will make an immediate impact in the hurdles in the BIG EAST. Mathew primarily ran the sprint hurdles in high school, but with his athleticism will see some action in the 400 hurdles and relays at MU. Mathew is an excellent student and I expect him to excel in both the classroom and on the track."
