On Sept. 14 the 1965-1966 Wake Forest Mile Relay Team returned to campus for a reunion with their coach. Coach Jordan shot the starting gun and each athlete ran a lap around the track as current athletes and coaches cheered them on. Allan Head (’66) even went over a hurdle! This team exemplifies the Demon Deacon spirit and it was great having them back at Kentner Stadium.
