MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Georgia College Cross Country head coach Steven Cary has announced the addition of Kim Roush as volunteer assistant coach for the upcoming season. Roush also currently serves the university as a Lecturer in the Marketing Department.
“I’m really excited to have Kim join our staff this year,” said Cary. “She brings with her 15 years of running experience at different levels, which I believe is a huge asset as she’ll assist in helping our men and women develop athletically. Kim is passionate about the sport and passionate about young people—two things that make her a perfect fit for our cross country teams and GC Athletics as a whole. I look forward to working with Kim to help our teams achieve new levels of success, both athletically and academically.”
Roush was a coach for her alma mater, Our Lady of Providence High School in Clarksville, Indiana for three seasons, guiding her team to the regional meet and individuals to the state meet each season. She has been an active runner for over 15 years, competing in two marathons, over 10 half marathons and numerous 5K and 10K races. The 2011 Southern Indiana Runner of the Year, her favorite distance is the half marathon.
Roush founded and is an active member of the Milledgeville Milers, a community running group in Milledgeville. She has a bachelors in Marketing from Butler University and an MBA from Duquesne University. Roush worked as a brand manager for a Fortune 200 Company prior to joining Georgia College.
Roush and the rest of the Bobcats will hit the ground running with practice starting in mid-August. The first meet comes Friday, Sept. 1 as the Bobcats take on the field at the Border Clash XC Meet in Valdosta.
