Whitman-Hanson Regional High School announced the hiring of Steve George as its new cross country coach today. George replaces Keith Erwin, who left to take the women’s cross country coaching position at Curry College. George brings a wealth of experience to Whitman-Hanson including 6 successful seasons at Notre Dame Academy. During that time his teams won 5 league championships and 5 League meet victories. His teams advanced to the All State meet each of the last two years. In addition 10 of his former runners are now competing at the collegiate level.
“Whitman-Hanson Cross Country has a rich tradition of success and a big part of that have been the outstanding coaches, from Sue Moss to Kevin Black to Keith Erwin among others. Adding a coach of Steve’s caliber gives us great confidence that the program will continue to be among the best in the state,” Whitman-Hanson Athletic Director Bob Rodgers said. “Steve will be an outstanding mentor for our students both in athletics and in life.”
It was not an easy decision to leave such a successful program, but George couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with two excellent teams.
George, who met with the team today, will be the head coach of both the girls and boys teams and will have an assistant for each program. Whitman-Hanson competes in the Patriot League.
