Martin Methodist College Executive Director of Athletics Jeff Bain has officially announced the addition of Men and Women’s Cross Country as the department’s 16th and 17th varsity intercollegiate programs.

“We are excited to launch our 16th and 17th intercollegiate sport teams with the introduction of Men’s and Women’s Cross Country,” Bain said.

The RedHawks will compete in the Southern States Athletic Conference and will become the seventh Men’s Cross Country program in the league and the ninth Women’s Cross Country program. All sponsoring institutions are invited to participate in the annual SSAC Men and Women’s Cross Country Championship.

Shortly after the addition of the programs, Bain also announced Andrea Mize as the first-ever coach of the RedHawk Cross Country squads.
