Grand Rapids Community College’s cross country teams will have new coaches – familiar faces who were part of the staff last year when both times finished in the national top 10 and three student-athletes earning All-American status.

Assistant Coach Garrett Lacey has been named head coach of the men’s team, and Assistant Coach Sharon Becker will be head coach of the women’s team.

“Coach Sicilia did an outstanding job building the GRCC program into a national power,” Interim Athletic Director David Selmon said. “He’ll be missed, and we wish him well.
