Rob Lynch (Assistant Coach):  Coach Rob is starting his sixth year coaching HATF.  He has also helped coach HAXC for five seasons.  Rob primarily works with the shotputters and distance runners.  He enjoys helping out with track and cross country when he is not working at Melmark School, where he works with children with special needs both in and out of the pool.  Coach Rob has two children on the HATF team.  Daniel is a 8th grader and Ren is a 5th  grader.  His sons also run for the HAXC team.  Coach Rob is excited to start the 20176 HATF season!

Noelle Holmes (Assistant Coach):  Coach Noelle has twins, Jessica and James, in 5th grade at Holy Angels School.  They have been involved in HATF since 1st grade and HAXC since 2nd grade.   Coach Noelle became interested in becoming a volunteer coach during the twins' 1st year of track in the "Fun Runners" group. Coach Noelle has been encouraging and guiding the Fun Runners, preparing them for JV along with teaching strong values of teamwork, team support, and most of all, enjoying the sport of running. Coach Noelle and her family belong to Holy Angels Parish.

Stacey Reyburn (Assistant Coach):  Coach Stacey is a mom of two (three if you count the husband) active boys and a 1st grade teacher at Holy Angels School with several years of middle school teaching experience. Recently, during Catholic Schools' Week 2016, Stacey received her most coveted recognitions to date from an outstanding Diocesan athlete, and a former elementary and middle school student of hers, for "outstanding teaching and dedication to Catholic Education.....affecting lives and providing long term benefits to the nation's youth by instilling the importance of academic excellence and high moral standards".

Stacey has always been an active member in team sports first as an athlete and later as a coach.  Upon graduating from high school, she promptly returned to her alma mater and began a coaching career in 1995 as an assistant high school cheerleading coach/head junior varsity squad coach. Stacey began volunteering for the HATF program when her oldest son began his running experience with the Fun Runners in 2014, and soon assumed positions as a HAXC and HATF coaching staff member. Since the Spring of 2015, she has proudly served on the SJ-HAA Board as communications chair. Once a cheerleader, always a cheerleader, you can usually find her (well, let's be honest....you'll probably hear her first!) around the last 150 meter mark quite enthusiastically cheering (old habits are hard to break) on our runners!

Nicole Greenplate (Assistant Coach):  Coach Nicole begins her third season with the coaching staff of HATF.  She has also been a member of the coaching staff of HAXC for the last three years.  Coach Nicole works primarily with the Girls team and JV runners.  Coach Nicole is a special education teacher, and also enjoys coaching basketball, camping, gardening, leading her daughter's American Heritage Girls troop, and spending time with her family and their beagle. Coach Nicole has one son on the squad, and a daughter who is a Fun Runner.  They attend Mt. Aviat Academy and Coach Nicole and her family are members of Immaculate Conception Parish in Elkton. 

Marlin White (Assistant Coach):  Coach Marlin is in his third year coaching HATF, but has been involved with track & field for over 20 years as a coach and athlete.  Coach Marlin began CYM track running for legendary Coach Jim Blunt.  He then moved on to run at Delcastle High School and Saint Augustine's College.  After a brief break, Marlin began coaching at Mount Pleasant High School and George Read Middle School.  Coach Marlin was able to train, guide and coach multiple athletes to achieve awards and personal goals.  As a parent coach, he hopes to motive athletes to achieve their best.  This is normal work for Coach Marlin because he does this daily at AI duPont Middle School where he is dean of students.

Natalie Keefer (Coach – Fun Runners): This will be Coach Keefer’s second year on the HATF coaching staff. She will be primarily focused on the Fun Runners (K-2) Program.
