Crunkleton inducted into Colorado-based Hall of Fame


George Crunkleton, a 1979 Slippery Rock University graduate with a bachelor's degree in economics, was inducted into the Mullen High School Track and Field Hall of Fame in Denver, Colorado.

Crunkleton served as Mullen's sprint coach from 2003-2005 as the team captured three consecutive state championships. Mullen's 4x100 relay team also won the state title all three years under Crunkleton's tutelage.

At SRU, Crunkleton led The Rock to the NCAA Division III national track and field championship in 1979, the only NCAA team title in school history. He set three SRU sprint records, was the PSAC MVP and competed in the 1983 National Sports Festival and 1984 Olympic Trials.
