The men and women's cross country teams will open up their season this Saturday at Middle Georgia State in Macon.
The women's squad is led by three returning sophomores, and the men's squad by four returning sophomores. Coach Ella stated "I am so excited for the team we have this year. This was the first year we signed athletes to the women's program and I am confident that the three ladies we signed will contribute greatly to our vision, mission and goals regionally and nationally. We have nine amazing women!"
This year there was not a struggle to get five solid men to compete. They are packed with twelve solid men. Coach T added "our men's team came back with a vengeance from the national championships last year. The energy that the returning athletes are bringing to the team is contagious! We had way more men come out this year for the team than we had our three years combined. We narrowed it down to twelve and we are excited to see what they do for the program."
