It’s with a heavy heart that I share that long-time Troy Track & Field Coach Herb Hartman has passed away. Coach Hartman spent 60 years in the track & field program as a coach & athlete. He will be greatly missed but his impact on the athletes in Troy will always be remembered. pic.twitter.com/6lOxzJoai9
