George Fox: A Track & Field Powerhouse
If you're a track and field athlete looking for a program that will develop you as an athlete and give you the opportunity to train among the best, there is no better team than George Fox.
George Fox is known as a formidable opponent across the Div. III Track & Field landscape on both the men's and the women's sides. Through technical, individualized coaching, both men's and women's track teams have finished as Northwest Conference champions several times since 2011. Our athletes have been individual national champions multiple times, and we've had dozens of All-Americans wear our blue and gold. We also work hard in the classroom; both our men's and women's squads were named 2013 and 2016 NCAA Division III All-Academic Teams, with our women recording the second-highest grade point average in the nation in 2013.
Our track athletes are also known for their family-like approach to the team. Hard work bonds us together like family - and this extends throughout the George Fox community, where professors know students by name and academics are truly at the forefront of the college experience. George Fox students get the opportunity to grow spiritually in a Christian atmosphere at a school ranked among the top Christian schools in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report and Forbes.
