BROCKTON, Mass. ---- Athletics Director Julie Mulvey announced that Track will be a new sport added to the Massasoit Athletics Department for the 2014 Spring semester.
Track will join baseball and softball for spring sports, along with men's and women's soccer and men's and women's basketball.
"We want to give our students as many opportunities as possible, and track is a great sport to add to our athletic department," Athletics Director Julie Mulvey said. "There are plenty of students that competed in track from the surrounding high schools and this is a new avenue for them to compete. We are always trying to expand for our students."
Assistant Athletics Director Ben Warnick will be in charge of the program in its inaugural season. The team will compete in four invitationals against Division III schools and other junior colleges in the area.
Student-athletes that hit qualifying times in a particular event will have the opportunity to compete in the NJCAA Nationals, held at Mohawk Valley CC in Utica, N.Y., from May 8-10.
