Jamie just completed his 14th year as head boys cross country coach at Edina High School in Edina, Minnesota. Edina is a first ring suburb southwest of Minneapolis. He has also served as the distance coach during track during that time and was the head track coach for 6 years (2005-2010).
The Edina boys have finished runner-up in the Minnesota State meet twice (2012 & 2013) and were the Nike Heartland regional champions in 2013. They have qualified for NXN 4 times, including each the last 3 years placing 18th in 2010, 10th in 2013, 9th in 2014 & 13th in 2015. The last two years, they qualified for NXN after not qualifying for the Minnesota State meet – more on this later!
Jamie is proud to be one of 3 attendees to have been at all three Boulder Running Clinics (along with Jay Johnson and Dr. Richard Hansen)! Prior to coaching at Edina, Jamie coached at Minnetonka High School (where he ran in high school) for two years and competed collegiately at Saint Olaf College (go Oles!!!).
