SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba College has announced the hiring of Jamie Williams as Head Cross Country Coach.  He comes to Catawba after serving as cross country and track coach at Salem College for the past three years.

“We are delighted to have someone with Coach Williams’ experience and enthusiasm join us at Catawba,” stated Catawba College President Brien Lewis.  “We anticipate a lot of excitement about the future of our cross-country program.”

Williams helped lead Salem to a second place finish in the Great South Athletic Conference in 2012.  The GSAC did not sponsor cross country last year, but Salem had three top five finishes, including a second at the Catawba Invitational and a fifth at the Greensboro Invitational.  While at Salem, Williams assisted in starting the track and field program.

“I've admired and supported Catawba College Athletics for many years,” said Williams.  “I am grateful for the opportunity to join such a strong athletics department and look forward to working with Catawba's very talented runners.”

A 1993 graduate of Emory & Henry, Williams earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in geography and education.  He started and lettered two years as a wide receiver for the nationally-ranked Wasps’ football team.

Williams began his coaching career at Northwood High School in Saltville, Va.  At Northwood, he worked with track and field, volleyball and football.  In 1999, he returned to his alma mater to serve as cross country coach as well as an assistant with both the volleyball and women’s basketball teams.

Williams has also served as track and field coach at South Stanly (NC) High School and Eustis (FL) High School.  He helped South Stanly to a third place finish at the 2003 State Championships, coaching champions in the 110 hurdles, 400 hurdles, the pole vault and the 4x100 relay.

Williams and wife Lois, who is the Vice President of Enrollment at Catawba College, reside in Salisbury, N.C.
