Spartanburg, S.C. - Head men's and women's cross country and track & field coach Jimmy Stephens announces the 2007-08 schedules for the men's and women's cross country and track programs.
"We are very excited about the upcoming season," said Stephens. "We are honored to bring back the great tradition in cross country and to add track & field. We have a challenging schedule ahead of us. The schedule should allow us to evaluate where we are talent-wise and in the development of the our student-athletes. We feel like we have some strong kids coming in and hope to build a team that will eventually compete for an Atlantic Sun Conference title."
