Plymouth St. to add men's, women's track and field
A state-of-the-art indoor track facility for students, staff and community members is slated to open in October of 2015.
Clark also announced the hiring of John Ostler as the new head coach of all six Panther running programs — cross country, indoor track and field and outdoor track and field for both men and women. Ostler is a former Hamilton College assistant coach. He is also a former league champion and record-holding distance runner at St. Lawrence University.
The Panthers will compete in the Little East Conference in track and field, aiming to qualify for the NCAA Division III Championships.
This will be the first women’s track and field team in the school’s history. A men’s program existed in the late 1960s under coach Paul Arold and continued in the 1970s under coach Gerd Lutter.
