2. Our Mission: The UNCW Track & Field and Cross
Country program seeks to provide our student-
athletes with opportunities for success in NCAA
Division 1 athletics while supporting their personal
growth as students, citizens, and leaders. Our goal
for each of our athletes is for them to walk across
the stage at graduation with a diploma in one hand
and a championship ring on the other.
3. Our Core Values: While there are many values and
standards that we believe are common and
important within most successful teams, we believe
it all begins with Accountability, Commitment,
Discipline, Sacrifice, and Service.
