Congrats, new head coaches!

Several Wheaton alumni were named to head coaching positions at the start of the 2018–19 academic year at colleges around the region. Nicole LeLacheur Carter ’02 is the new swimming and diving coach at Brandeis University and Frank Holbrook ’13 is the new baseball coach at Rhode Island College. Scott Faucher ’13 was named head men’s basketball coach at Nichols College and Jesse Woods ’04 was named head baseball coach at Colby College. They join our roster of student-athletes who have performed well in their sport and in the classroom and then gone on to lead others. Here are the alumni leaders we know about and where they work. (If we missed anyone, let us know.)
