Anyone interested in trying out for the team must submit the required paperwork to the athletic office by 5 p.m. on Friday.

The College of Charleston has had several athletes achieve noteworthy success as walk-ons, including Christine Klinar, who went from a walk-on with the women’s track and field team to the school record-holder in the javelin.
