The Shocker Track Club was mentioned in the Wichita Eagle’s article highlighting the “50 Most Influential People in the Wichita Community Right Now”. The article identifies the most 50 most influential people in the “Wichita sports scene.”
Our STC club president, Darren Muci, was mentioned in the highlight of Wichita State University Director and Head Track and Field Coach, Steve Rainbolt, in No. 36. Assistant Director of Track & Field, John Wise, was also mentioned in the article!
36. STEVE RAINBOLT
Role: Wichita State track and field coach since 2000
The case: WSU has had a history of success with its track and field program, but Rainbolt has elevated the Shockers to another level in the last two decades. The Shockers have won 33 conference championships during Rainbolt’s time, not to mention 251 individual conference champions, 160 school records, 115 national qualifiers and 72 All-Americans. John Wise, Rainbolt’s assistant since 2006, is also worth mentioning, as the two helped form Shocker Track Club, now run by Darren Muci, which gives track opportunities to the Wichita community.

Leadership of the Shocker Track Club Youth Team is in discussion with Wichita State University-ICAA to identify a start-date for our summer program later this month at the Cessna Stadium track. Our Coaches are ready to go to work! We thus appreciate your patience as we work through the process of identifying the requirements necessary due to the challenges of COVID-19. As soon as we complete our discussion with Wichita State we will begin the registration process.
We will have hand sanitizer available, and also implement various health safety guidelines in order to provide as safe of an environment as possible for athletes, coaches, parents, and visitors. This will include asking athletes to complete a self-health assessment prior to entering the practice area. We will also recommend that athletes strongly consider wearing sun or safety glasses during practices.
