The Keuka College Department of Athletics has announced that it will add Men’s and Women’s Track and Field to its varsity lineup beginning in the spring of 2019.
“We are excited to move forward and bring Track and Field to Keuka College,” said Director of Athletics David Sweet. “Athletics has always been a key part of a Keuka College education, and we are looking forward to contributing to the College’s continued growth and vibrant atmosphere.”
The Men’s and Women’s Track and Field teams – the College’s 21st and 22nd varsity squads – will evolve as the program progresses. The Wolves will initially focus on middle- and long-distance events, then expand those offerings as both the program and facilities are developed.
“This will be a good complement to our current Men’s and Women’s Cross Country program,” Sweet said. “And it will offer the very talented track and field high school student-athletes in the area an additional choice to pursue their college degree and still compete in an activity they like.”
A Track and Field coach will be named in the near future. Meanwhile, recruiting for the 2018-19 season will begin immediately with Keuka College’s Cross Country Coach Joe Supple taking the lead. Interested student-athletes should contact Coach Supple at [email protected] and complete a recruiting form at www.keukaathletics.com/track.
