The Track and Field club is comprised of both Hobart and William Smith students. The program re-established in 2011. Members of the club train and compete primarily against varsity teams such as Cornell, RIT, Brockport, Geneseo and many more! The track club is a member of the National Club Track and Field Association which is a governing body that promotes and provides quality competition among club track and field teams specifically. Shortly after its “rebirth,” the track and field club is becoming one of many well run (literally!) clubs sports on campus.
Darnell Pierce is the head track coach and adviser for the Track and Field Club. Darnell competed in track for The College at Brockport and has coached at the modified and high school varsity levels. He works primarily with sprinters.
Jeremy Wattles has been a long distance runner for 15 years and volunteer coach for one. He was a three sport athlete in high school (Cicero North Syracuse) and college (Colgate University), running cross country, indoor and outdoor track—usually the 3k and 5k on the track and the 8k in XC. He has run everything from the 200m to the marathon, but prefers running anything in between the mile and 15k. If he goes more than three days without running, he transforms into a horrible grouch. He still hopes to break 16:00 in the 5k, and believes that while running is mostly a mental sport, you won’t become mentally tough or believe in yourself and your potential success unless you put in consistent training time and set ambitious goals.
