Marc Davis
Title: Assistant Coach

Marc Davis joined the Yale team in 2001 and works primarily with the Bulldog men's and women's sprinters. Under the guidance of Coach Davis, the Yale sprinters have seen a great deal of success and have begun to establish themselves as a threat on the east. In 2004, Davis' speedsters earned many accolades throughout the indoor and outdoor seasons. On the women's side, Katrina Castille and Joslyn Woodard both captured Ivy League Championships, with Castille winning the 60m crown and Woodard winning the outdoor 200m championship. Woodard also sped to a school record and All-East performance at the ECAC championships in the 200m where she finished in 2nd place. Castille and Woodard teamed with Jessica Pall and Aisha Cort on the 4x100m relay team to earn a 3rd place finish and an All-East performance at the ECAC championship hosted by Yale University. On the men's side, Davis' sprinters had a new found enthusiasm, which made for a very successful season. During the indoor season, Freshman Russell Kempf raced to an All-Ivy performance finishing 2nd in the 60m, and Sophomore Robert deLaski had the fastest time in the Ivy League for the 500m. During the outdoor season Kempf once again was an All-Ivy performer in the 100m and qualified for the Junior National competition in the 200m. Davis also coached the 4x100m relay team to their fastest time in the last 6 years and a spot on the Yale All-Time List. Prior to Yale, Coach Davis spent one and a half years at Lafayette College and three and a half years at Millersville University in Pennsylvania. While at Millersville he helped to guide numerous athletes to the NCAA Division II national championships and to all-East performances. He continues to bring a wealth of technical knowledge and enthusiasm to the Yale program. Davis competed as an undergraduate at Lafayette College under the tutelage of current Yale Coach David Shoehalter and was a two-time Patriot League champion in the sprints and was an all-East performer at 200m indoors. He graduated from Lafayette in 1995 with a degree in Sociology.
