Greg McMillan is a runner, exercise scientist and coach with the unique ability to combine the science of endurance performance with the art of real-world coaching. Greg has a masters degree in Exercise Physiology where his research focused on the determining factors of distance running performance. A student of the sport since he began running in high school, he continues to apply advances in sports science to his training programs.

Schools not in the top 15 can choose to move up to the Gold division. The races will continue to be ONE race, with results being split into divisions. Awards will be split accordingly as well. 4. Teams will once again register their teams for MSCCA Member Meets that are held on Tuesdays. Coaches who do not register their teams for ANY MSCCA meet will not be allowed to participate in the varsity portion of those meets.
5. Due to an increase in expenses(awards, meet materials, registration fees, banquet costs) the MSCCA has set fees for the 2015 season.
