SALISBURY, Md. – On Tuesday night, Salisbury University men's and women's track & field Head Coach Jim Jones made good on his promise to the Sea Gulls' 2016 NCAA Division III men's indoor track & field national championship 4x400-meter relay team, allowing the group to shave his head. Jones' and the track teams also used the haircut as a way to raise money for Women Supporting Women and the Brooke Mulford Foundation, exceeding their goal of $500.
A room full of Salisbury students, faculty, and staff was able to make their donations at the event, named Cut for a Cure, while witnessing senior Luke Campbell, junior Jerel Madison, and sophomores Zach Schmelz and Eric Halton take turns cutting off Jones' locks.
Just a month earlier, the team had held up its end of the bargain by winning the programs first indoor relay national championship with a time of 3:16.69 to set a school record in the race.
The Sea Gulls are back in action on Saturday, April 16 at the Christopher Newport University Captains' Classic; the meet is set for 9 a.m.
