Albany - The Darton College athletic program will be adding two new teams in the fall.
The Cavaliers are putting on their running shoes with the addition of men's and women's cross-country teams.
David Mann, who has been an assistant soccer coach for the Cavaliers, will be the head coach of both teams.
Mann, who loves to run to stay in shape, is excited about the challenge of starting a program from scratch.
But believes he will not have to look far to find runners for his two teams.
David Mann said "The local high school coaches have been very helpful. There is a lot of good cross-country teams in this area. So, I expect to get a lot of local talent on these two teams."
Coach Mann says any runner interested in the Darton cross country program to go to the school's athletic website and fill out a recruiting form.
The Darton athletic web site address is: cavs.darton.edu.
