MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College & State University cross country team and head coach Joe Samprone released its 2010 schedule Wednesday. The Bobcat men’s and women’s runners will compete in at least four events preceding the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) meet and NCAA Regionals.
The Bobcats close the regular season out in a Tri-meet event Oct. 23 at Augusta State University (ASU) where they will race the home team ASU Jaguars, as well as the University of Montevallo Falcons. This should prepare the team for their PBC Championship meet in nearby Evans, Ga. on Nov. 6, where the women finished second and men finished fifth in 2009.
Nov. 20 marks the NCAA Southeast Regional in Charlotte, N.C. at McAlpine Park near the campus of Queens University where the team hopes improve on a 2009 campaign in which the women finished an impressive 4th of the 23 teams competing and the men wound up 11th.
The GCSU Department of Athletics, back-to-back winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Georgia College prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the Bobcats' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
