Campus Life

Women's Cross Country

 

Introduction

In 2009, Green River restarted its cross country program to the applause of the local running community. Not since 1991 has the community taken advantage of the Auburn, Washington campus, full of running and hiking trails. With a great tradition of local runners in the South Sound area, Green River Community College is looking to attract talented student athletes to participate in this intercollegiate varsity sport. A member of the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC), the Gators will be looking to quickly become a competitive program under the guidance of a skilled coaching staff.
