UNK Track Adds Eight More|
Nebraska-Kearney track & field coach Brady Bonsall announced today the names of eight high school seniors (five men and three women) who will compete for the Lopers in 2014.
In February, UNK added 24 newcomers (14 women and 10 men) to next year’s roster. Overall, the 32 newcomers won 12 gold, six silver and eight bronze medals at the 2013 Nebraska & Kansas State Championship meets in May.
“We’ve added some student-athletes to our recruiting class since February that we look forward to welcoming to UNK,” said Bonsall. “There are still a couple of student-athletes who are finalizing their decisions but we’re already pleased with both the men and women’s recruiting classes.”
