Navarro soccer and football programs received rankings Wednesday when the NJCAA released preseason polls. Coach Alicia Wilson's Bulldog soccer club, ranked fifth last week by the United Soccer Coaches of America, drew the No. 6 ranking in the NJCAA's Division I listing. First-year coach Jim Gush's Bulldog football program landed at No. 18 in its polling -- one of four SWJCFC teams in the Top 20.  Navarro football was ranked No. 2 in the league's annual poll by conference coaches during a media day event at the end of July.

Funeral services will be at 3 pm Tuesday, Aug. 14, at Griffin-Roughton Funeral Home for Navarro College Athletic Director Roark Montgomery III, 65, who died Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018 after a brief battle with cancer. Visitation will be 6 to 8 pm Monday, Aug. 13 at Griffin-Roughton Funeral Home. Montgomery came to Navarro College as a golf coach/instructor and Director of the Professional Golf Management Program in 1988. Before employment here, Montgomery was involved with the Professional Golf Association in a variety of roles. In 1998, Montgomery was appointed Athletic Director due to his extensive experience and knowledge in sports. Dr. Richard M. Sanchez, District President at Navarro College said, “The decision to appoint Montgomery Athletic Director was based upon the notion that an Athletic Director must understand the psychology of coaches and athletes as a prerequisite to success. Montgomery displayed a solid understanding of coaches and athletes and was therefore appointed to the position of Athletic Director.” During his tenure, he provided effective leadership to six intercollegiate sports at the NJCAA Division I level: football, men's basketball, baseball, women's softball, volleyball, soccer and a cheer program.  All three women's programs were added on his watch. His ability to communicate, work with and understand...
