Seminole State Raider Athletics to add cross country teams

 

The Seminole State College of Florida Athletics Department recently announced the addition of men’s and women’s cross country to its list of sports programs. Starting Fall 2018, both teams will begin intercollegiate competition in the sport.  

After analyzing the Seminole State Athletics Department’s budget and gauging perspectives from various athletic directors at Seminole County Public Schools, Seminole State Athletic Director Kurt Esser concluded that the addition of cross country to the department’s programming would be particularly beneficial to the College and Seminole County.  

“This is a running hotbed, “says Esser. “Adding cross country is great for our community as it increases the opportunities for area student-athletes, as well as maintains our fiscal responsibility... It’s exciting, and I can’t wait for the fall.”

According to Esser, there is a long “to-do” list regarding the addition of the new athletic program, including hiring a new coach, recruiting student-athletes, securing gear and uniforms, and creating schedules. He plans to have a coach hired for both teams by the end of Spring Term 2018.

 

The Seminole State Raider Athletics Department was established in 1965. The Raiders compete in three NJCAA Division I sports: baseball, softball and women’s golf.
