IMG launching track, cross country program

IMG Academy announced the launch of a high school track and cross country program on Friday.

Student-athletes will begin training in the fall under renowned track and field coach Loren Seagrave, who has trained several U.S. Olympians and coached the Louisiana State University women's track team to five NCAA titles.

They will practice and compete on a new multi-sport complex that will feature a 5,000-seat stadium, an eight-lane track, Bermuda grass surface and video board. The first phase of the complex will be completed in August.
