Ready to soar

Pole VaultA championship legacy will be reborn in spring 2016 with the resumption of full participation in track and field for Berry student-athletes. Competition in throws, jumps and sprints will be added to the sport, which has been limited to distance running at Berry since the 1980s.

Ready to SoarThe return of the sport that produced Berry’s first conference championship in 1961 will coincide with the completion of Valhalla stadium, Clark Track and Dickey Field. Funded through LifeReady: The Berry College Campaign for Opportunity, the stadium and related facilities will provide a first-class on-campus home for track and field, lacrosse and football.

A national search is now underway for a track and field head coach. Assistance will be provided by Paul Deaton (91C), Berry’s longtime cross country coach, and two members of the football staff, Ossie Buchannon and Zach Smith. Read more.
