Jerry Baltes GVSU Athletics Head Coach- Track & Field/ X-Country 

“Evan Bernache brought an incredible amount of wisdom and tactics to our cross country squad in the fall of 2018 as we prepared for the NCAA Championships.

His insight on the mental preparation and his ability to connect with our student athletes were huge assets in helping our team execute great races in our Championship run.

Evan’s willingness to search out the right path for each individual was huge in allowing each of our student athletes to have the opportunity to race to their full potential when it matter the most at the end of the season.

There is no doubt in my mind that Evan’s contributions to our individual student athletes had a direct impact in both of our teams winning the Mens’ and Women’s NCAA Cross Country Team Championship in Pittsburgh on December 1st, 2018.”
