|Title:||Assistant Men's Track and Field Coach|
Mike Wilson is in his first season as assistant track and field and cross country coach at Lees-McRae.
Wilson joins the Bobcat coaching staff following a tremendous career as a track athlete at nearby Appalachian State University, where he competed in the pole vault, high jump, triple jump, and long jump for the Mountaineers. He posted several outstanding performances during his career at ASU, including a fourth-place finish at the SoCon Outdoor Championships in the pole vault as a junior.
A native of Asheville, N.C., Wilson assisted the Lees-McRae track and field program as a volunteer last season, working primarily with the Bobcats’ pole vaulters and helping Lees-McRae to post one of the top team performances in school history at the Conference Carolinas Championships. Wilson graduated from Appalachian State in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in exercise science.
