BUTTE – Montana Tech director of athletics Matt Stepan announced the upcoming addition of track and field to the Orediggers’ list of varsity sports. The men’s and women’s teams will begin recruiting immediately and are scheduled to compete in the Frontier Conference and the NAIA indoor and outdoor seasons in the spring of 2022.

“We are excited to announce this addition coming off the heels of a very successful first cross country season,” said Stepan. “Coach (Zach) Kughn has established a great culture inside of our running program and we believe it is time to take the next step and continue to expand the opportunities for student-athletes at Montana Technological University.”
