Alcorn Indoor Track and Field Program reinstated by the NCAA Committee

Lorman, Miss. (January 31, 2014) - Alcorn State University Indoor Track and Field Program was reinstated by the NCAA DI Championships/Sports Management Cabinet on January 22, 2014, and our student athletes will compete at the University of Houston’s “Howie Ryan Invitational Indoor Meet” January 31-February 1.

“We worked very hard to reinstate the program for the 2013-2014 season,” shared Dr. Garry Lewis, assistant professor in sport management and head Track and Field coach. “We wanted to give our students a chance to compete at a high level this year. We will continue to raise funds and align potential sponsors and donors to create a revenue stream for the program to succeed. I would like to thank the Athletic administration for their support of my vision to propel the track and field program to the next level.”

The Indoor and Outdoor Track schedule is available on the athletic Web site at www.alcornsports.com .
