Andrew Sweeney is entering his first year at Tiffin after spending the past two years at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, working as a volunteer assistant coach with the men's middle-distance and distance programs. Under his tutelage, 4 middle-distance and distance top-10 marks in school history were established. The first recruiting class under his watch was regarded as one of the top in the northeast for 2018-19, and saw 3 different athletes break the previous freshman record of 8:21 for 3000m indoors. Prior to Cornell, he coached at Windsor High School in Windsor, N.Y. while student teaching in the fall of 2017. During his time there, two athletes qualified for their first New York state meet in cross country.
Collegiately, Andrew competed at the University of Missouri as a freshman before finishing his remaining eligibility at Binghamton University, where he earned a Bachelor's in English in 2016 and a Master's in Education in 2017. He was a 5-time conference academic honor roll member, and was inducted into the National College Athlete Honor Society in 2016. Before college, he had a standout career at Rush-Henrietta High School in Rochester, N.Y. as a key member of their nationally ranked cross country team and track & field relays. Andrew holds a USA Track & Field Level 1 coaching certification.
