Good Day Future Athletes 

My name is Coach MAJ Wes Whitaker I am starting my 4th year and very excited to serve as your Head Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track Coach. I have a true passion for teaching the sport of Track and Field.

My approach as a coach is to teach and bring the best out of you. Winning in the classroom will always come first. If you do your best in the classroom and at practice winning on the track will come in time.

I only ask that if you decide to run for this team and are selected that you bring the same energy I will bring to you. I look very much forward to building a solid track program and look forward to serving as your Head Coach. Some of my accomplishments are listed below:
