Cottey College adds two sports to intercollegiate competition




NEVADA, MO—Cottey College announces the addition of two more intercollegiate sports beginning in fall 2014. Cross-country and tennis will be added to the three sports currently offered at the College: basketball, softball, and volleyball.

“The Board of Trustees approved these two proposals at their fall meeting in October,” said Dr. Judy Rogers, President of Cottey College. “We are so pleased to offer more opportunities for young women to compete in athletics and learn valuable leadership skills on our campus.”

“These two sports are perfect additions to our athletic lineup,” said Dave Ketterman, head basketball coach and athletic director. “With the local focus on the Healthy Nevada initiative and lifetime fitness, cross-country and tennis are two sports our athletes can continue long after they graduate.”

“We also want prospective student/athletes to know that these are scholarship sports,” added Ketterman. “Athletic scholarships are available for prospective students who want to compete intercollegiately for the Comets in any of our sports.”

Cottey is searching for part-time coaches for both sports. Job descriptions are available on the College website, www.cottey.edu. Questions should be sent to the athletic director at the email and phone number listed below.

High school athletes interested in continuing their careers in cross-country or tennis at Cottey should forward that information to the Office of Enrollment Management. They may be reached via email at enrollmgt@cottey.edu or by phone at 417-667-8181, ext. 2107. The athletic director may be reached by email at dketterman@cottey.edu or by phone at 417-667-8181,
