Bob Covey has been at it for quite a while. This year marks his 41st at Bakersfield College as health instructor and head coach of men's track and cross country. It's not that there haven't been plenty of opportunities to go elsewhere. Over the years, several Division I schools came calling with offers to take over their prestigious programs. He turned them all down. Now,...

Pain can be a wonderful thing. Standing at the starting line of Volkslauf 2003, my worries about going back to school and how I was going to pay for it faded. It was the kind of distraction that makes you forget about bigger problems because there is a more immediate one staring you in the face. Kind of like a soothing toothache. True, many people think a toothache is just...

BC Cross-Country Story/Nidever/10-20-03 Coach Bob Covey knows why this men's cross-country season hasn't been as successful as the last. It's no mystery. Four of his top five runners did not return, three due to ineligibility and one, his best runner, because of personal issues. With those runners, last year's team placed second out of 13 in the league championships and went...

A group of women sidestep again and again, each pair of players moving around a set of four orange cones in the campus gym. Their faces change from energetic to tired as they slowly lose the stamina they brought to volleyball practice. The drills four nights a week encourage speed and teamwork, said Denise Adams, head coach. "If they learn to play together, there's no reason...
