Hall of Fame to Induct Midland Cross Country Coach

Jan 31st , 2010

Midland head cross country coach Jim McMahon was recently selected as a member of the NAIA Hall of Fame class of 2010-2011.

The induction ceremony will be held May 25 at the Outdoor Track and Field National Championships in Marion, Ind.

"It's a testament to the kinds of athletes that have gone through the program," McMahon said. "We've had a lot of all-americans and many of them are now in the Midland Hall of Fame.

"The individual honor is nice but really it shows what kind of athletes we've had at Midland."

Under McMahon the 1989 women's track and field team won the NAIA National Championship. He was named NAIA National Coach of the Year in 1989 and both the women's team and McMahon were later inducted into the Midland Hall of Fame.
