Seth Cordes, a four-year Cross Country and Track & Field distance runner at Silverdale Baptist Academy, has signed a letter-of-intent to continue his education and running career at Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina.

 

Cordes showed remarkable improvement over his four-year running career at Silverdale, particularly his junior and senior seasons. He finished 16th out of 55 runners at the TSSAA Division II East Region Class A Meet his senior year.

 

The Cross Country/Track & Field coach at Bob Jones, Landon Bright, is excited to have the hard working Cordes join the Bruins – “We are definitely excited to have Seth join our program.

One of the things that caught my attention about Seth is his desire to improve. I’m looking forward to seeing how he does and the ways he can contribute to our team.”

 

Robert Hetrick, the Cross Country coach at Silverdale, believes that Cordes’ strength goes beyond his running ability. Hetrick said – “Seth is a leader. He has by far been the bedrock of our team the past two seasons. It’s going to be really hard for us to replace him. He has a growth mindset. He is going to continue to grow and develop at Bob Jones and take off.”

 

Chris Neighbors, Track and Field coach at Silverdale, echoed Hetrick’s remarks – “Seth always worked hard and never complained. That is a joy to have as a coach. He really enjoys running. He has improved a lot. He’s going to be able to contribute at Bob Jones. I’m excited for him and proud of him.”

 

The Bob Jones Bruins Men’s Cross Country team has won four straight National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Division II National Championships. Bob Jones is in the process of joining Division III of the National College Athletic Association (NCAA).

 

Cordes will be studying Graphic Design at Bob Jones.
