Tigerville, S.C.— Less than a year after adding women’s golf and men’s JV soccer, the North Greenville University Athletics Department will continue its dramatic growth as the NCAA Division II program will add track and field programs for men and women according to Director of Athletics Jan McDonald.
The official launch of the new Crusader programs has been set for January of 2011.
“We are delighted to announce the addition of track and field,” McDonald said. “There is a great deal of interest in track and field, and we felt it was essential to meet the needs of our student-athletes by adding it.”
The first step in the process of inaugurating the program will be the hiring of a head coach. Interviews have been initiated and NGU expects to announce a decision in the coming weeks.
