North Adams, Mass. – Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) has announced that the College will hire a new coach for the Women's cross country team.
According to Scott Nichols, director of athletics, "The women's cross country program will strengthen its foundation with the addition of a head coach for the women's team." Previously, Kent Lemme, the current cross country coach, monitored the program's development and coached both men's and women's teams. Women's cross country has competed as a full varsity team each of the last three academic years.
"We are thrilled to strengthen the women's program by providing a head coach for the team. Kent has done a great job with both programs and the two teams will continue to work closely together," said Nichols.
MCLA will begin the search for a women's cross country coach immediately. MCLA is a member of the NCAA, ECAC and Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC).
