Our Middle School Coaches
Karen Bowman, Middle School Cross CountryI've been running competitively most all my life — from middle school all the way through college. I now run for fun (and the gear) and enjoy sharing that passion with newbies. After taking a few years away from coaching at Woodlawn, I am most excited about returning and bringing back the Golden Banana, Brown Demon repeats, and the end-of-season Wink Ceremony (watch out 8th graders). Coaching Philosophy: Work hard, stay humble, and keep getting faster! Favorite Runner: Joan Benoit-Samuelson Best Part of Coaching Cross Country: Saying the words "beep beeps" to my runners and watching their faces drop. Hint: it's the name of a very special workout.
Craig Cummings, Middle School Co-ed Soccer, Flag FootballI’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Craig Cummings (coach Craig to my players), Woodlawn’s middle school soccer coach. This will be my first year coaching soccer at Woodlawn, but certainly not my first coaching position.
I’m originally from Maryland and played college lacrosse for Anne Arundel College in Arnold, MD. I was involved with lacrosse for almost 20 years, as a player and a coach. My coaching experience ranges from middle school age to adults, with several of my high school players going on to play Division I lacrosse.
Haley Jobe, Middle School VolleyballA current junior at Davidson College, Haley returns to coaching middle school volleyball after a two-year hiatus. She’s been playing volleyball since the second grade and loves sharing her passion with the girls she coaches. Haley is very involved in the volleyball community on Davidson’s campus as the official bookkeeper for the collegiate women’s team, co-captain of the club volleyball team, and a frequent pick-up player. She hopes to encourage the love of the game in her players and work on improving their fundamental skills over the course of the season.
