Men's Cross Country

GMC Cross Country ready to build on last season success.

Building off last year's success is the name of the game for the 2017 Georgia Military College Men's Cross Country teams.  The men were the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association and NJCAA Region 17 Champions, and sent 4 runners to the NJCAA Division III National Championships.  The team was also named NJCAA Scholar All-Americans, with almost 10 individual runners being named Individual Scholar All-Americans. 

The men's team will be one in transition.  With the graduation of Adam and John Dougherty, who are now attending school and running at the University of North Florida, there is an opportunity for runners to emerge as team leaders.  "The Dougherty brothers were great representatives for the institution, young-men who will be missed.  But I am looking forward to this new group of runners to see who will emerge as the team leaders."  With three of the top four runners graduating, the bulk of leadership falls to Alvaro Garcia (Brooklyn, NY) and a bevy of newcomers.

The season's races will traverse the stage of Georgia.  The Running Bulldogs will run in Valdosta, Macon, Columbus, Aiken, SC, and Milledgeville all with eyes of a Conference and Region Championship.  The ultimate goal is the NJCAA Division III National Championships in Westfield, MA on 10 November. 

"This season should be another good one for both programs.  The student-athletes will represent the school in a very positive way." Coach Sherwood added "Come on out and cheer the Bulldogs on, it makes a big difference to have someone encouraging you!"
