2014: John returns as the team captain and has been part of the winning tradition he has experienced since he was a freshman. John not only loves to compete, but he is a strong leader and has done a tremendous job unifying his men’s team. After putting up some strong miles this summer, we are very excited to see John’s best racing this last year of his college campaign. We are looking for him to be a front runner in the conference, and lead his team to what could be the best season we have ever put together as a team.
2013:Another team captain (Along Tockstein)…posted one of the fastest marks of the team last year…confident that he will be a front runner for the Mustangs in cross and track…needs to work with the squad as a pack…working hard to keep top five guys together…looking to keep a tight 1-5 split.
2012: Coming back from a slight injury…Hurd has a personal best of 25:51…If he can perform that again, John can put us on the podium and really aid the squad.
2011: The sole new addition to the defending GSAC Champion men's squad, Hurd promises to be a fantastic addition, with high school bests of 9:51 for 3200m and 4:48 for the mile. Relatively untapped, Coach Schroeder anticipates Hurd will be an immediate contributor.
