Scope and Contents

These annual publications provide schedules for the upcoming season; rosters of the men's and women's teams; team photographs; profiles of coaches and outstanding team members; and a season preview. Also included are lists of all-time honors and awards for both men and women. The earliest publications sometimes cover only the men's team or the women's team, but the guides cover both teams beginning in 1988.

Within the date range of this collection, guides are missing for 1984, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1993, and 1996 through 1999. In addition, the guide for the 1987 season of men's cross country is missing from the collection.

History of the Cross Country Program at Tech

Georgia Tech began a women's cross country team in 1984 with the men's coach, Mike Spino, at the helm of the program. The first full-time coach of the women's team, Dee Todd, came to the team in 1985, but by the 1988 season both men's and women's teams were coached by the same person again, men's coach Steve Keith.

Alan Drosky, who starred on the Georgia Tech cross country and track and field teams from 1985 to 1987, has coached the Tech men's and women's cross country teams since 1991. Under Drosky's leadership, the teams have had considerable success: Both the men and women finished third in the ACC meet in 1994, and in 2001, the women placed first and the men came in fourth at the NCAA regional level. In 2011, the men's team placed sixth and the women's 17th in the NCAA South Regional Championships.
