Joshua Hayman comes to Louisburg College to Head it's first full Track & Field team to add onto the successful XC team that has consistently finished in the Top 10 of the country for Junior Colleges. Prior to Louisburg, Hayman was coached at the University of Louisiana at Monroe for the past two years as their Head XC/Distance coach while pursuing his Master's in Exercise Science. While at ULM he coached several all Sun Belt conference athletes in the 10,000, 5,000, and 1500 and had a top 5 individual place finisher in Sun Belt cross country championships in Elias Keter. Under his direction, the Warhawk women had their highest finish in the Sun Belt championship in the pervious 6 years.
Prior to his time spent at ULM, Hayman was a student-athlete at Syracuse University where he graduated in 2015 with a degree in Exercise Science. He competed mainly in the middle-distance events, culminating in an all-conference performance in the 4x800 meter relay at the Big East championship. During his time at Syracuse, the Orangemen would go on to win the NCCA D1 Cross Country Championship in 2015.
Hayman is a Delaware native where during his high school career at Appoquinimink he went on to gain All-County accolades in the 1600 and 800 meter races.
"I am very excited to join the Hurricane team and continue the success that the Cross Country team has built here in Louisburg. This team has the potential to win National Championships during the Fall in Cross Country and with the addition of a full Track & Field team we can now also set our sights on placing highly in the Winter and Spring championships. I am thrilled for the opportunities that lie ahead!"
