Runners Stay in Shape All Winter
The Summit’s robust running programs have a winter sport in indoor track, and that distinction sets the school apart from its Miami Valley Conference and Greater Cincinnati peers.
Coach Kurtis Smith started the team more than a decade ago. Since that day, the team has grown exponentially in size. Every outdoor track event except discus is replicated. The sport remains a tool for cross country interest but now attracts a broad range of boys and girls who want to improve their fitness between fall and spring.
Coach Kurtis Smith started The Summit’s indoor track program in 2007. Coach Smith also has led the boys’ and girls’ cross country teams since 2006 and serves as an assistant track coach. Coach Smith graduated from Elder High School (2001) and was the first male cross country runner at Mount St. Joseph University. After graduating from the Mount in 2005 with a Master’s degree in pastoral counseling and theology, he began teaching Theology at The Summit. Kurtis is assisted by Kim Horning, Mason T. Moore and Sam Rhodes.
