COACH NATALI SAYS

  • “Friday was a huge day for the Bethel College track program: two national champions and five All-Americans; the men’s team with a program-record team total high in points at 26. I’m so proud of each and every member of our team that competed today. We’re looking forward to day three tomorrow.”
  • Jordan Downs capped off an amazing meet for the BC track program by being our sixth All-American in the meet. Also, it is a great program accomplishment for our men’s team to finish the meet in fifth place. That is nine places higher than the previous high which was set last season. I couldn’t be prouder of our kids for what we accomplished this week. It’s time for a break and then outdoor season will be upon us. We are very blessed in so many ways. God gets the glory.”
