Lone Star Conference track teams will have a new competitor at upcoming conference meets as Harding University was announced Thursday as an affiliate member for men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track & field.
The decision to invite Harding was reached at last week’s LSC Council of Presidents meeting and calls for the Bisons and Lady Bisons to join the LSC immediately, as the indoor track & field season is underway and outdoor events are set to begin next month.
The agreement, which will be reviewed annually, stipulates that Harding’s track teams are eligible to compete for LSC individual and team championships, and earn weekly and postseason awards. They are also entitled to representation as a voting member of the track coaches’ Advisory Group.
“We’re pleased to welcome coach Steve Guymon and the Harding track teams back to the Lone Star Conference,” LSC commissioner Stan Wagnon said. “This a decision that brings direct benefit to the student-athletes at Harding as they will enjoy competing for championships with the other fine track programs in our league, but it’s mutually beneficial to the LSC as the Harding program is well-respected in Division II track circles. We are excited about the partnership.”
With the addition of Harding, the league has six men’s and eight women’s teams competing in the inaugural season of indoor track & field. The LSC Championships meet is set for Feb. 23-24 in Lubbock, Texas.
In outdoor track & field, the Bisons and Lady Bisons become the league’s ninth men’s and 10th women’s team. This year’s outdoor championship will be held in Canyon, Texas, as part of the LSC Spring Championships Festival.
Harding, located in Searcy, Ark., and affiliated with the Great American Conference for most sports, has been competing as an independent in track & field under head coach Steve Guymon. During his seven-year tenure, the men’s team qualified for six indoor and seven outdoor national meets, while the women’s squad reached both the indoor and outdoor championships five times. Additionally, 58 athletes have earned All-America honors with Guymon at the helm.
This is Harding’s second stint with the LSC, after holding full membership in the league for three athletic seasons and competing in the 1998, 1999 and 2000 conference track meets.
