Returning for the 2014 season are sophomore runners Ashley Collins (Perry), T'keyah Gray (Macon), Janna Turner (Macon), Bethanie Kitchens (Macon), and Danny Shaw (Macon).
Returning for the men's team, Danny Shaw is looking to make his mark this season after competing in the 2013 National Junior College Athletic Association Half Marathon. Shaw posted a personal best and medaled at the National Championships by running the 13.1 mile race in under an hour and a half.
