Findlay, Ohio – On Tuesday, July 10, the University of Findlay athletic department announced the hiring of Bree Woelber, Eric Wymer, and Clint Dilon as coaches in the track and field and cross country programs with Woelber and Wymer serving as full-time coaches and Dilon serving on a part-time basis.
"We are very excited to have these three individuals join us at Findlay and cannot wait to see the results of their work", said Findlay's Director of Athletics, Brandi Laurita. "They each were talented college athletes, but have shown an ability to share their knowledge of their respective disciplines with current student-athletes in a professional manner. We believe their youth and experience will help energize, not only our track and field and cross country programs, but our athletic department as a whole."
Woelber, who will coach jumps and multi events at Findlay, comes to the Oilers after two years as a graduate assistant at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
