(CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky.) – Thomas More University President Dr. Joseph L. Chillo and Athletic Director Terry Connor announced today (Friday, Aug. 2, 2019) that Mark Evans has been appointed the new head archery coach at Thomas More.
"We are excited to name Mark the new head archery coach at Thomas More," stated Connor. "We believe he will build a very successful program as we move into the Mid-South Conference, which sponsors archery at the varsity level."
Evans's connection to Thomas More began over 20 years ago. He received his bachelor's degree from TMU in 1998 and returned to complete his MBA in 2004.
"Being a graduate of Thomas More myself, I am both humbled and excited to help bring archery to Thomas More," Evans said. "We live in a talent-rich archery area, and by having a competitive team at Thomas More, we can offer a great educational and athletic experience for students close to home."
Evans has been coaching archery for Boone County Schools since 2014. He was the first head archery coach at New Haven Elementary, where he finished no worse than third in the region in his five seasons, including three consecutive regional titles. His teams also qualified each year for the National Archery in the Schools Program's State, National, and World Tournament.
Since 2015, Evans has also served as the Assistant Archery Coach at Ryle High School. He helped lead the male archery team to its first KHSAA regional title in 2018, and the female team to consecutive regional second place finishes in 2017 and 2018.
