Speaker: We are pleased to announce that our guest speaker for the evening will be Ashland University Head Track and Field Coach, Jud Logan. Now in his 17th season as Ashland’s head coach, Logan has guided the Eagle men to three consecutive NCAA Division II team national championships. Logan is also recognized for his success as an athlete on the international level. A world class star in the hammer throw, he has been on four United States Olympic Teams – 1984, 1988, 1992 and 2000. He held the American record of 268 feet, 8 inches in the hammer throw. Throughout his career, which included five Olympic Trials and nine national trials, he has never finished outside of the top three finishers. Logan also understands what it takes to overcome adversity. In 2019 he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. As he went through treatment, his disciplined mindset from being an athlete and a coach helped guide him, leaning on the mantra, “I’m not looking for easy. I’m only looking for possible.” You won’t want to miss Jud elaborate on his journey and discuss how he approaches life with this winner’s mentality.
