The school year is now officially underway, and athletes at Iola High are looking to grow the brand of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) on campus.
FCAs goal is to unite faith and athletics. FCA is an amazing positive environment for all athletes, according to Iola student and FCA member Audrey Coltrane.
Head track and field coach, Dana Daugharthy, has been the sponsor for FCA for the past few years. Prior to last year, Daugharthy said that he was doing everything possible to keep FCA afloat. Even though Daugharthy was bringing breakfast for members, the early morning meeting time was a turnoff for students, he said. Last year was a turning point for the struggling organization, Daugharthy said.
