College notes: St. Vincent adds women's track and field program
St. Vincent College increased its total number of men's and women's varsity sports to 20 with the recent addition of women's track and field.
Men's track and field coach Andrew Herr was named to also coach the women's program, with men's assistant Steve Snider taking on the added duties of women's assistant.
The school now sponsors 10 teams each in men's and women's sports.
