Chris Noyes will once again be alongside Brian Yowler as his assistant coach for the 2012 cross country campaign. Noyes is in his fourth year as an assistant for cross country, but he has been around the Golden Tornadoes for much longer than just those four years. In fact, Noyes has spent nine seasons as an assistant coach for the Geneva track and field team’s middle distance runners.
Noyes graduated from Allegheny College in 1986 where he ran cross country for two years and was a member of the track and field team for four. Noyes was twice named All-Conference in the NCAC for his work in the 3000 meter steeplechase. In addition to his own running habits and his work at Geneva, Noyes is a pastor at 1st Presbyterian Church in Beaver Falls, where he has served for the past ten years. He and his wife Terry live in Beaver Falls with their four children Jessica, Ian, Elise and Syron.
Geneva students have the opportunity each summer to attend Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies to develop practical methods of caring for the environment.
