GMC cross country will welcome six new runners. 

Georgia Military College cross country coach Rob Sherwood is excited to welcome six new runners to his team.

“I think this is possibly the strongest class as a whole that we have had,” he said, when asked about the results of his recruiting efforts.    

The six runners come with a host of accomplishments at the high school level.

Nicquelette Fazekes – Dixon HS (IL). Led her team and posted multiple sub-20 minute 3-mile races. Coach Sherwood on Fazekes: “She is someone we look to be the top runner for us. She will not only encourage the team to be better but could push for individual honors.”

Stephanie Trejo – Mariner HS (FL). Trejo is a multi-sport athlete with a real talent for running. Coach Sherwood on Trejo: “Her tenacity and desire to improve should help her fit in well with the team.  She has the talent to be in our top-7 and help make us a legitimate repeat conference champion favorite.”

Paige White –Telfair County HS (GA). White was one of the best Single-A runners in the state and will be welcomed addition to the Bulldog Team. Coach Sherwood on White: “She is fast and will be one of our top runners.” 

Bohanon Meadors – Plymouth HS (IN). Meadors is a keen runner with high background in cross country and track. His athleticism will help him transition well to the men’s 8k distance.  Coach Sherwood on Meadors: ”He is a strong athlete with a great experience. We will look to him to break our top-5.”

Heath McDonald – North Oconee HS (GA), McDonald has a strong background in running and triathlons. He is a licensed pilot. Coach Sherwood on McDonald: Heath is a great runner. His passion for running and competition make him an excellent addition to our team.”

Jacob Cain – Brandon HS (FL) Cain is another multi-sport athlete who loves to work and improve. Coach Sherwood on Cain: ”His passion for the competition will be infectious.He has what it takes to be a factor on our team competing for a conference championship.”

Sherwood is getting the job done recruiting this year and has brought in several athletes that can help make a statement at Nationals. Sherwood added: “This season our goal is to qualify two teams for the National Championship, and with these athletes along with our returners bring that goal just a little closer."

GMC Cross Country has established a solid foundation. They have regularly qualified both men and women as individuals for the national championships. Twice the women’s team has finished in the top-10. These six athletes, along with the returners and another 10 to 12 runners, are still working and will put the GMC cross country program in a position to do things they never have.

“I would love to see us have both men’s and women’s team finish in the top-10 at Nationals,” Sherwood said.

The Cross Country team’s schedule will be released later this summer at
