XC 1969History

In the fall of 2007, Rocky Mountain College restarted the cross-country program under the tutelage of Coach Alan King. Several times throughout the school's history, cross-country has had a presence on the campus, with the earliest team on record in the 1960s under the guidance of Coach Stiffler. The program lasted through the 70s before being disbanded for a brief period of time; in the early 80s the program was born again, only to see it quickly fade. Now in the program's third go-around, the team has risen to include both men and women with a roster of nearly 40 athletes. Since 2007, Coach King has coached one conference champion, five all-conference runners, and four NAIA national qualifiers in cross-country.

In 2010, Rocky Mountain College reinstated distance track. In its first season since the 1980s, Coach King had two national qualifiers in indoor track and two national qualifiers in outdoor track. The program shows now signs of slowing down as they head into their fourth season of competition in cross-country and second season of distance track.
