Covenant is proud to welcome two new coaches this fall!
1. Caroline Wilke is our new Varsity Women's Basketball Coach
Caroline is from Williamsburg, Virginia, and attended Walsingham Academy. She played at the Varsity level from 8th grade to 12th grade, leading her team to win 4 state championships. Caroline went on to attend The University of Virginia and was a 5 year member of the Women's Club Basketball team, serving as Treasurer, Vice President, and President. While on the club team, Caroline helped her team win five East Coast championships and one National Championship.
In 2012, Caroline earned a Bachelor's degree in Religious Studies from the University of Virginia, and the following year, she graduated with a Master's degree from the University's Curry School of Education. In August of 2013, Caroline began working as a first grade teacher at The Covenant School in Charlottesville. Shortly after, Caroline accepted her first position as Head Coach of the Middle School Covenant boys basketball team. In addition, she began assistant coaching with the Lady Eagle Varsity girls, alongside coaches Rock Watson and Austin Crocker. Caroline has been with the girls program for six seasons and is thrilled about her new role as the Head Coach.
2. Colleen Norair has been named our Varsity Field Hockey Coach
Colleen Norair is currently a Fourth Year at UVa. She will be graduating this May with a B.A. in English and Psychology. She was fortunate enough to represent UVa on the Women's Field Hockey team for all four years where she was primarily a defensive midfielder but also spent time at striker and on defense. Although she loves playing and being on the field herself, she has a passion for coaching and is excited about joining the coaching staff at The Covenant School next fall!
Located in Charlottesville, VA, The Covenant School is a non-denominational, private, Christian day school for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, visual and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
