Cowley College two-time track All-American signs with Rogers State
Cowley College sophomore Dawson Crawley came to Arkansas City as one of the first recruits for then newly hired track and cross country head coach Cameron Rieth. Crawley turned into one of the building blocks for the program as he helped the cross country team capture a national championship and is a two-time All-American as a member of the Tiger track and field team. He will take his talents to Rogers State as he recently signed a letter of intent to compete for the Hillcats.
Along with his cross country success and being a two-time track All-American, Crawley was the region VI champion in the indoor 1,000-meter run, ran as part of the indoor distance medley relay team that was conference champs, and is a multi-time national qualifier and all-region performer.
"Dawson has been the ultimate team player and has helped shape the track and field program at Cowley," Cowley head coach Cameron Rieth said. "He is getting a great deal at Rogers State and will make an immediate impact in the 800-meter run."
Crawley, who came to Cowley from Jenks, OK, will be within one hour of home as Rogers State is located in Claremore, OK.
"Rogers State is close to home and has a good program, so I am excited about this opportunity," Crawley said. "Cowley has been a great experience, I definitely wouldn't change anything. I have made good bonds with the guys on the team and hope to perform well the next few weeks at regionals and nationals."
