Bobby Over takes reins of Seton Hill track, cross country programs

Bill Beckner

Three-year assistant coach Bobby Over was promoted to head coach of the Seton Hill track & field and cross country programs.

“From day one, Seton Hill has felt like home to me,” Over said. “I am very excited to be able to continue to work with the athletes that make this team a family.”

In Over’s first year as an assistant, the women’s cross country team made the NCAA Division II nationals for the first time and placed third in the Atlantic Region.

The men’s and women’s programs in both sports have produced numerous school record holders and conference and national qualifiers with Over on staff.

Over also coached two years at John Carroll, where he was a recruiting coordinator. He was the meet director for the Ohio Athletic Conference Cross Country Championships in 2014.

A former distance runner, he was a three-time cross country and track All-American at Allegheny, where he was selected to the Gators’ All-Decade Team in cross country and indoor track. He was the Mideast Cross Country Regional Runner of the Year three times and NCAC Cross Country Runner of the Year twice.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
