Aaron Smith, a 2008 Greenfield-Central graduate, has replaced Hunter White as boys cross country coach.
White will remain with the program, serving as a volunteer assistant.
Smith, who ran cross country and track at G-C, graduated from Indiana Wesleyan in 2012 and is a mathematics teacher at GCHS. He became a full-time assistant to White after his graduation from college.
“Aaron was one of the standout students of the sport – not only talented and gifted athletically, but he is a true student of cross country as a discipline and a way of life,” White said. “I have no doubt that the program will continue to grow and get better each year.”
Paul Youngkin remains as an assistant coach.
Also, summer conditioning for the boys and girls cross country programs has begun.
Conditioning is Monday through Friday beginning at 6 p.m. All junior high and high school runners are encouraged to attend.
Interested runners should meet at the cross country sign near the practice football fields.
The Track and Field Awards will be held Wednesday in the high school cafeteria at 6 p.m.
Athletes must turn in their uniforms before they receive any awards.
