GC To Host First Track Meet In 19 Years

Greenville College is set to host its first home track meet in 19 years on Saturday, April 5th. GC’s new Athletic Director, Kent Krober, told WGEL the college’s eight-lane, NCAA-approved track is ready for a big event.

“We have ten colleges and universities coming to campus,” said Krober, “to the John Strahl Athletic Complex for an amazing day of track and field. Five of the 10 teams are ranked nationally with their track programs. We have several athletes who could set some national records. Our track is fast and they’re that good. So I would love to have the people of Greenville and Bond County come out and take in quite a spectacle. There’ll be over 400 athletes in that afternoon out at our Greenville College Track and Field area.”

GC’s John Strahl Athletic Complex is located on Elm Street, south of Harris Avenue.
