New Coaches Bring Championship Experience To Ole Miss
Adam Judge, a former NCAA All-American and Big Ten champion hammer thrower, is entering his second season as an assistant coach with Ole Miss Track and Field.
Judge coaches the Rebel throwers, a role he had served for the previous six years as an assistant coach at Indiana State.
In Judge's first season in Oxford, Rebel throwers Benjamin Lapane and Fabia McDonald showed dramatic improvement in the javelin. Lapane threw a personal-best 216-10 to place sixth at the SEC Championships and move into the third position in the school record books. McDonald heaved a personal-best 145-4 during the SEC Championships heptathlon, which helped her place second in the hep and move into second in school record books.
During Judge's time at Indiana State, Sycamore throwers won 11 conference events and competed in the NCAA Championships on six separate occasions. He also served as the program's recruiting coordinator.
Among his many prized pupils, Judge mentored 2011 NCAA indoor weight throw champion Felisha Johnson, as well as 2011 Indoor All-American Kelsey Hanley. He guided Brandon Pounds to shot put and weight throw titles at the 2009 MVC Indoor Championships, as well as a shot put crown at the 2009 MVC Outdoor Championships.
An outstanding collegiate athlete in his own right, Judge was the 2003 Big Ten champion and a two-time All-American in the hammer throw while at Indiana University. Prior to becoming a Hoosier, he was a three-time NJCAA All-American and a national champion in the hammer throw while attending Barton Community College in Kansas.
After graduating from Indiana in 2003 with a B.S. in general studies, Judge served as a volunteer assistant coach with the Hoosiers. During that time, he trained and competed in the 2004 USA Olympic Trials in the hammer throw.
He and his wife, Beth, have two daughters: Maddison and Liv.
