Boys Cross Country
After serving in an assistant-coaching role for the last five years, Brandon Newbould assumes head-coaching duties this year alongside coaches Nicholas Unger and Bill Jordan. Since joining the coaching staff, Brandon has guided the boys to three consecutive Interscholastic championship titles.
Under Brandon’s guidance, the boys’ cross-country program espouses values of competition and training that are integral to its consistent success. Honoring the opponent in competition is stressed at all times, as is supporting the team as one part of the whole, which has led to consistent depth through the varsity and junior-varsity squads.
Brandon moved east from his home in Alaska, and brings his love for the outdoors with him. He established the boys’ signature workout as a rough hill fartlek through a brushy course north of town. Brandon also leads the boys through the extensive trail systems around Exeter, and starts each season off with a long wilderness run through nearby Pawtuckaway State Park. Brandon competes himself as a member of the Whirlaway Racing Team, winning the USATFNE individual marathon championship in 2009 and 2013. In 2010, he finished third in an international field at the Gore-Tex® Transalpine race in Italy. He was also the USATFNE Mountain Running champion in 2013 and a top-50 finisher at the Boston Marathon that year.
