CCS Blaze expanding athletic opportunities

As summer winds down, athletics for the Clinton City School Blaze are heating up.

Tryouts for the inaugural cross county team will be held Aug. 15 at the City of Clinton Field. CCS Athletic Director E.T. Stamey said the cross country team will be coached by Teri Kerley and former Anderson County High School runner Amanda May will join the team as an assistant coach.

“We’ve joined the Knoxville Running Club. The season is already prepared and we can enter the meets we want, whether it’s three, five, or seven,” he said. “We’re thrilled about that.”

Their first meet will be held at Victor Ashe Park in Knoxville and later in the season, they will also have a meet at Norris Dam State Park.
