Kenny Anderson

Director of Track & Field Central Methodist University

About

Kenny Anderson enters his second season as the Director of Track & Field/Cross Country in 2021-22.

The 2020-21 season saw both the men’s and women’s track & field programs soar to new heights, with numerous student-athletes collecting All-American, All-Region, and All-Conference accolades under Anderson’s direction.

During the indoor season, the women’s program garnered their highest finish since the conference expanded to 14 schools in 2015 with a runner-up finish. Anderson guided freshman Kailey “KJ’ Johnson to a new school record in the 60m dash (7.83) and a conference championship in the 60 meter hurdles. Johnson finished as the highest point scorer at the Heart Indoor Championships and was honored as the Heart Women's Indoor Track Athlete of the Meet. For his accomplishments, Coach Anderson was named the Heart Women’s Indoor Coach of the Year.

On the men’s side under Anderson’s tutelage, Senior thrower Taylor Bottomley broke school records in both the shotput (16.82m) and the weight throw (19.03m). Bottomley was named the Heart Men's Indoor Field Athlete of the Meet as well as the USTFCCCA South Central Men’s Field Athlete of the Year. Anderson also guided the quartet of Nehemiah Colyer, Jacob Fritz, Curtis Johns, and Mohammed Nyaoga, to a fourth place finish in the 4x400 meter relays at the NAIA Indoor National Championship.
