MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Georgia College would like to formally welcome new Cross Country Graduate Assistant Coach Ryan Beaudry to the Bobcat family. Head Coach Steven Cary, in his first year at the helm, was looking for someone “that has knowledge of the sport and experience.” According to Cary, “Ryan Beaudry fit that mold perfectly.”
Coach Cary also stated that, “This is going to be a great opportunity for Coach Beaudry to continue pursuing his academic goals, while gaining valuable experience that inevitably will make him a better candidate for an assistant or head coaching position in the future.”
Beaudry, after graduating from Valdosta State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Physiology, remained at the school and began his career as a Strength and Conditioning intern where he created exercise programs for men’s soccer and aided the strength and conditioning staff in monitoring and training athletes from all major sports.
At VSU, he also served as a volunteer assistant cross country coach where he traveled with the team and took on responsibilities such as counseling and supporting the student athletes.
Beaudry brings knowledge and experience to a Georgia College cross country program that has high expectations for the new season.
The Bobcats will look to get off to a running start this year when they host the annual Bobcat Classic on September 4 at 7 p.m.
