Wellesley’s own Tim Broe, head boys and girls cross country coach and assistant track and field coach at WHS, has been extensively profiled by Brian Towey, contributing sports writer at DyeStat.com. DyeStat calls itself “the internet home of high school track and field” and makes it its business to know who’s who in the world of high school running. It was only a matter of time until the online publication sat up and took notice of Broe, noting that the 3rd-season already-legendary WHS coach is the real deal.
Towey says, “As an Olympic 5,000-meter finalist in 2004 and a 10-time national champion, Tim Broe’s distance running career was one of the most decorated in recent United States history. But it is as a high school coach where Broe, a native of East Peoria, Ill., has found his calling.”
From there the story touches on Broe’s background, the Wellesley kids he’s coached (Loren Andrews and Maggie Donahue get a mention), and lets the reader in on a few secrets of the Broe-brand of coaching.
Love the headline of Towey’s piece: “Broe applies blue collar work ethic at ‘pressure-cooker’ Wellesley.”
