Cross Country Club Team at WKCTC

Paducah, Kentucky (August 2, 2016) West Kentucky Community and Technical College is starting a cross country club team for its students this fall.

Male and female students are encouraged to join the club team and can learn details during upcoming informational meetings in Haws Gymnasium. The first meeting will be held August 6 at 9 a.m. and the second meeting will be held August 24 at 7:30 a.m.

Former Graves County High School cross county and track coach Ken Harrison will coach the club team. Harrison led high school boys and girls teams to several state and regional championships during his 15 years as coach. More than a dozen of his runners continued the sport in college.

Harrison has completed nine marathons and qualified twice for the Boston Marathon, and brings his wealth of experience to WKCTC.

We are encouraging students to participate in this program who want to be part of a team, stay in shape and enjoy a little competition, said Amy Elmore, WKCTC student development and activities coordinator. This is an exciting opportunity for our students.

The WKCTC Cross County Club Team will participate in four meets in September and October, one each at Freed Hardeman University, Austin Peay, Kentucky Wesleyan College and the University of Evansville.
