Women's Track & Field

 

Introduction

Hurdle

In 2011 Green River reinstated the men's and women's track team as a natural extension of the cross country program started in 2009. Under the direction of Coach Tori Ammons the grass roots program has provided the opportunity for naturally talented sprinters and middle distance runners to join a thriving long distance program in competitive track events. In 2012, Freshman Lisa Petersen scored the first NWAACC championship points for the Gators since the program last competed in 1992.

In 2015 Janayla Scott (triple jump) and Krystal Fowler (shot Put) won the first individual NWAC Championship events since the re-birth of the program.

For more information about our track & field program, contact Head Coach Jeff McGlocklin.
