At the start of the 2014-15 season, Andrea Ouellette was named the interim head coach of the women's track and field program.
“We are excited to have a former student-athlete head up our women’s track and field program,” said Director of Athletics Michael Mudd. “Andrea’s pedigree speaks for itself and she will bring a tremendous amount of enthusiasm to the position, which should pay dividends for our student-athletes."
Ouellette begins her fourth year on the sidelines, primarily coaching the jumpers for the women's track and field team while also serving as the coach for the men's long and triple jumps for the second season.
Under her direction six student-athletes have qualified for the Division III New England Championships in her events and Amanda Caldarone became the programs first Division III Outdoor New England long jump champion in 2013.
Also during the 2013 outdoor campaign, two of her jumpers won MASCAC individual long and triple jump titles while she helped direct the Blue and Gold to their first-ever New England Outdoor Alliance crown.
Coach Ouellette is a three-time Division III New England honoree in the triple jump (twice indoors) while she also earned All-ECAC Division III accolades during the 2008-09 indoor season. Coach Ouellette is a three-time MASCAC Champion in the triple jump and she has also earned MASCAC/Alliance honors in the 55-100-400 meter hurdles and the long jump.
During her senior year, Coach Ouellette broke the school-record in the triple jump and provisionally qualify for the NCAA Division III Outdoor meet as she helped lead the squad to their first-ever MASCAC Indoor and Outdoor Championships.
For her three-year contributions to the track and field team, she was recognized with the WSU athletics departments "Robert Devlin" Senior Female Athlete award.
