Hesston College men’s cross country coach Gerry Sieber announces Austin Braddock, a senior from Bethel Christian Academy, Ottawa, Kan., as the newest addition to the Larks program.

A two-time President’s Education Award winner at Bethel Academy, Braddock will study disaster management at Hesston.

“Austin’s small private high school does not have a cross country team but I expect that Austin’s active recreational lifestyle will help him adapt to the challenges of formal distance running,” Sieber said. “Austin brings a friendly, can-do attitude to our cross country family.”

Braddock attends New Life Assembly of God and First United Methodist Church, both in Baldwin City. He is the son of Scott and Lana Braddock, Baldwin City.
