Boys cross country coach and boys track distance-running boss John O’Malley will tag-team with former boys track and football coach Dave Wierzal to guide the track team this year.

The move comes after Joe Nemeth stepped down after a career that included three sectional titles and a third-place finish in Class 3A in 2016.

O’Malley is planning on a one-year stint in this position and said he is glad to have Wierzal (the head track coach from 1998-2000) at his side.
