UJ coach speaks at Rotary


Megan Kuehl, new track and field coach for the University of Jamestown, was the guest speaker at the recent Jamestown Rotary Club meeting. She was introduced by Rotarian Shane Ost.

Kuehl received her master's degree from a college in Aberdeen, S.D., and has coached at St. Norberts and other college programs. She said she had no intention of coming to Jamestown but found out her in-laws were graduates of Jamestown College and found the community to be so welcoming. She said she has a great coaching staff including Jim Clark who has coached at UJ for 40 years. The facilities at UJ (Harold Newman Arena, Larson Center, etc.) including the new Two Rivers Activity Center facility have helped with recruiting, Kuehl said. She recapped the indoor and outdoor seasons which she said were both successful. She will have only two seniors this year and 45 new members. There are 72 out for track right now.

Austin Bauer presided over the meeting. Tim Ottmar gave the invocation. Lyman Keim collected "Happy Dollars." Mark Domek from Unison Bank was inducted as a new member in the Jamestown Rotary Club.

Harold Bensch will introduce today's program. Matt Pepple will have the invocation. Joan Morris will be the song leader, and Carrie Orn will collect "Happy Dollars."
