New Varsity Cross Country Coach Introduced
Coach Janelle Branch comes to Westminster as a first year head Cross Country coach for the 2018 season. Hailing from Michigan, her athletic resume includes seven All-American awards while running Cross Country and Track and Field for Cornerstone University and competing in four USA Track and Field Championships, placing as high as eighth in 2012. As a coach, she has served two seasons as an assistant for high schools in Michigan and China specializing in developing distance and mid-distance athletes.
Branch is currently completing her time in the US Navy where she was stationed in Japan onboard the Aircraft Carrier USS Ronald Reagan. She will be moving to Augusta this summer where she and her husband (also active duty Navy) recently purchased their first home.
Coach Branch recently stated, “I am excited to see what God has in store for this season. I was drawn to Westminster because of the Christ-centered approach to all aspects of student development, including athletics. I am looking forward to connecting with students, parents, and other coaches to continue the strong legacy of Westminster Cross Country.”
We are looking forward to welcoming Coach Branch to the Westminster family this July and to another fun cross country season. Go Wildcats!
