Dave Woolever returns to the helm of the Johnson & Wales University cross country program for his fifth season. A former collegiate runner, Dave has served as assistant coach and head coach at both the collegiate and high school levels. After graduating from Shepherd College, Dave served as a graduate assistant to the East Carolina University cross country program. From there, he then served as a volunteer and assistant coach for various high schools in North Carolina and West Virginia. Coach Woolever returned to Shepherd where he assumed the head coaching responsibilities for the NCAA II cross country program. In this capacity, Woolever vitalized the program by securing and coordinating the 1997 West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) Championship Meet. He also directed and coordinated the Shepherd Running Camp. Both of these events were "firsts" for the Shepherd program.
