May 28, 2014
Madeleine (Maddy) Outman has been promoted to co-head track and field coach, Ursuline College Athletic Director Cindy McKnight announced Wednesday (May 28) morning. Outman has worked with the cross country and track and field programs at UC since August of 2012.
Head cross country coach Ralph White will serve as the co-head track and field coach.
Over the past two school years Outman, a USATF Level One certified coach, has helped develop numerous Arrow runners and her hard work culminated in the outdoor track and field team capturing the first Great Midwest Athletic Conference title in school history in April. She helped sophomores Nicole Burlinson and Bea Indurain earn conference Track Athlete of the Year and Field Athlete of the Year honors, respectively.
She helped Burlinson become the first NCAA All-American in the history of Ursuline College. In mid-March, Burlinson took fifth in the 800 meter run at the NCAA Division II Indoor Championships and last weekend, she finished third in the same event at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Championships to earn All-American accolades a second time.
For their efforts, Outman and White were tabbed as the G-MAC Coaches of the Year.
Outman came to Ursuline from Emory University. During her two years (two outdoor and two indoor seasons) with the Eagles, Outman was named the USTFCCCA South/Southeast Region 'Assistant Coach of the Year' three times, in addition to being part of the University Athletic Association's (UAA) Coaching Staff of the Year for three of her four seasons on the staff. Under Outman's leadership, the Eagles claimed the conference women's team title three times, both indoors and outdoors in 2010-11 and outdoors in 2012. She worked with eight All-Americans, 50 conference champions and 10 school record holders during her time at the school in metropolitan Atlanta.
She joined the Emory program after a standout career as a competitor at Williams College (2005-06 & 2006-07) and as a graduate student at NCAA Division II member Indiana University at Pennsylvania (IUP) during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.
Outman was a 13 time All-American in the sprints, jumps, hurdles and multi-events. While an undergraduate student at Williams, she earned seven of her All-American honors and helped lead her school to the Division III national championship in 2007. Outman is currently competing professionally and has four top-10 finishes at the USA Championships to her name. She hopes to compete in the 2016 Olympic trials.
Away from the track, she was also a four-time NCAA Academic All-American for her work in the classroom.
She concluded her collegiate career as a 17-time conference champion and the holder of 16 school records at IUP and Williams. She still holds the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) all-time records in the 100 meter hurdles (13.70), 400 meter hurdles (58.98), indoor pentathlon (3,807 points) and outdoor heptathlon (5,392 points). Outman was twice chosen as the NCAA 'Field Athlete of the Year' for the Atlantic Region during her two-year stint at IUP. In addition to her impressive array of athletic accomplishments, she served as a volunteer assistant coach for the Crimson Hawks, with one of her duties being the design and implementation of strength and conditioning programs for sprinters, hurdlers and multi-event competitors.
Outman graduated from Williams with a double major in psychology and American Studies in 2008. She obtained her master's degree from IUP in Sociology in 2010 with a perfect 4.0 grade point average. Additionally, Outman was the IUP and PSAC nominee for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award.
