Ben Talbert: President
Hey fellow runners! I am a junior from Charlotte, NC majoring in Industrial Engineering and minoring in Statistics. When I'm not running I thoroughly enjoy leading with Cru, disc golfing, playing cards, and eating organic peanut butter. I was Wolfpack born and raised, and my favorite part about the Club team here is being able to remain competitive without the commitment of Varsity athletics. Other interests include biking, skiing, netflix-ing, and eating organic peanut butter. Did I mention I like peanut butter?
Carmen Davis: Co-Vice President
Hi everyone! I am a junior, double majoring in Chemical and Textile Engineering, from Greensboro, NC. I really enjoy running 5ks, half marathons, and marathons. In addition to running, I enjoy traveling (I’ve been to 21 states and 9 countries), backpacking, baking dairy-free desserts (I’m lactose intolerant!), listening to Taylor Swift, and eating avocados (According to my friends I eat an excessive amount of avocados). When I am not at practice you can probably find me struggling to bike up hills on campus, studying, planning my next travel adventure, or hanging with friends!
Michael Ashburn: Co-Vice President
Hey everyone! I am a junior studying Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Computer Programming. I grew up in Jamestown, NC and have been running since middle school XC. My long term running goal is to race in the Boston Marathon, and I hope to run my first 26.2 in the next 2 years! When I'm not running, I enjoy listening to and making music as well as watching and talking about movies/ tv shows. I love being a part of the club team, and through it I have met a lot of my closest friends and workout buddies. I love conversing and meeting people, so feel free to talk to me anytime! (although if you mention any music/ movies/ shows I'm into, I may talk your ear off)
Josh Rees-Jones: Coach
Hi! I'm a senior in computer science from West Jefferson, NC. When I'm not running, I'm usually reading a physiology textbook, Renato Canova's LetsRun posts, Tinman's TheRunZone posts, or some other coaching book. I also really enjoy computer science and math, especially web-related stuff. Fun fact: I lived on a boat for 2.5 years as a kiddo with my brother Mitch. I love talking to people, especially about running, so say hi anytime!
Lance Bullerwell: Coach
Elizabeth Reidy: Co-Sprint Coordinator
Hello! I am a freshman majoring in Business Admin with a concentration in who knows what at this point. I was originally born in Vermont but 10 years ago I moved to Waxhaw, NC. When I am not running, I am usually watching Netflix or in the library. I am also a huge sports fan (I am beyond competitive) and I love to bake. I listen to all types of music but my favorite genre is country. I am also an avid fan of anything chocolate… and just food in general, honestly.
Anu Frempong: Co-Sprint Coordinator
Greetings! My name is Anu Frempong, a freshmen majoring in Nutrition Science with a minor in Music Performance. I am a native of Asheville, NC and started hurdling at the ripe old age of 7, and have loved it ever since. Aside from jumping over things, you can find me playing on the tennis courts, hiking, reading books, or playing various instruments. I love The Lumineers and Beyonce, and have been known for my obsession with bananas. The NC State XC/Track Club never seizes to pursue personal and communal development for the betterment of society, which is a lifelong goal that I am so excited to be apart of. I feel blessed to be a part of this team, and am looking forward to many great seasons!
Sara Bartczak: Treasurer
Hey folks! I’m Sara Bartczak from Pittsburgh, PA where I learned that XC is one hill of a sport in one of the rainiest cities around. As a current junior in chemical engineering, I’m excited to financially suit the needs of the club. I enjoy skiing, twizzlers, and of course puppies. Happy running!
Sidney Allen: Secretary
Hey y’all! I am a freshman majoring in Industrial Engineering and minoring in Statistics, and I am from Martinsville, VA. I’ve been running close to 10 years and plan to run even farther in my life. Outside of running, I love to do anything outdoors, watch YouTube videos on various subjects, or just hangout with my close friends. I’ve only been on campus for a short amount of time, but I’m excited to meet even more people as I begin my time as the club secretary.
Spencer Husen: Webmaster
Howdy! I'm a sophomore in computer science from Hillsborough, NC. I started running local road races with my Dad when I was very young, and have had a passion for running for a long time. I am very blessed to have the opportunity to run with the guys and girls on this awesome team, and have already made some amazing friends in just the year and a half I've been at NC State. When I'm not at practice, you can find me grinding out creative Strava posts, binge-reading on Wikipedia, and watching sports with my roommates. I look very forward to serving the club through operating the club website and hope to bring some really cool improvements throughout the year!
