FULLERTON, CA- The Men's and Women's Cross Country and Track programs will begin looking for a new head coach in this off-season as they say goodbye to Jaime Winslow after four years of service at the helm of the program.

Coach Winslow has overseen the development of runners like Brian Tressler, a two-time All-GSAC selection and the longest-tenured runner for the Royals during Coach Winslow's time at HIU. Alicia Wright was another standout for the Royals during Winslow's time as head coach, as Wright made the first appearance for HIU at Rim Rock for the NAIA Nationals as an individual qualifier in 2013.

"It was a tough decision that took a lot of prayer, but in addition to my coaching career I work as a Marriage and Family therapy intern with a Master's in that and I feel called to move into that field full-time," Coach Winslow said of her decision to move on.

"John Turek has been phenomenal to work for, I'm really going to miss working for him because he's a great athletic director," Winslow remarked when asked about her time at HIU. "In the time that I've worked here at Hope he has really worked to improve the entire Athletics department by leaps and bounds, so it's been really fun to be a part of HIU athletics as they've gotten more competitive each year.

Coach Winslow also remarked that, "I'm really going to miss this group of runners. They're all really special people, the team bond that they have is really strong and they're all really close with each other – it's definitely really hard to walk away from that and I'm going to miss that the most. It's been a lot of fun and I'm excited to watch the future of the program."

Hope International Athletics thanks Coach Winslow for her time and effort invested in the development of the Cross Country and Track athletes through four seasons and wishes her blessings in her new direction. Any interested in the coaching vacancy should contact John Turek for more information.
