KOKOMO, Ind. — Men’s and women’s cross-country
IU Kokomo Joins NAIA
will be added to competitive sports this fall at Indiana
University Kokomo, building on a successful athletic program as the campus seeks
membership of the NAIA conference.
These two programs bring the number of team sports to four in just one short year since
Chancellor Michael Harris announced IU Kokomo would start an athletic program.
“These teams will enhance student life, as well as continue to bring the campus and
community together to rally around students who wish to continue in athletics,” said
Jack Tharp, vice chancellor for student services and interim athletic director.
“We are excited to debut these two new teams during the fall competition season.”
Students who join cross-country will quickly become the campus’s most visible athletes,
training not only on campus, but also on roads and trails and in parks throughout the
city. A search is underway for a cross-country coach, and students interested in being
recruited for the teams can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursday’s announcement capped a year that included the first seasons for women’s
volleyball and men’s basketball. Tharp is hopeful to begin the second year of team
sports by joining the NAIA. The association visited campus in February and will
announce its decision in April.
The addition of the cross-country program is a step to fulfill the NAIA requirement of
having six varsity sports within four years of joining.
Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
