Even though Wellsville-Middletown High School doesn't have a golf program, it does have a coach after hiring Jesse Cobb as its new Secondary Principle.
Last year Cobb was Montgomery County's varsity golf coach. That means this move has created a vacancy for the Wildcats that has yet to be filled.
"I accepted this position in April after being approved by the board," said Cobb. "At Montgomery County, I taught high school weight lifting, life sports and health. I also coached golf. There will be a new golf coach next year. but I hope to stay involved with the team."
Cobb isn't the only new hire for the Tigers. That's because Athletic Director Darin Sehlke resigned recently so he could accept a similar position in the Kansas City area. Before he left Sehlke, did make one last move, though, which was to hire Louisiana grad Steve Gschwender as his replacement.
"I loved my time at Montgomery County over the past 12 years and I am very thankful for that opportunity," Cobb said. "While at Montgomery County, I was able to work and with great people."
After graduating from Montgomery County in 1999, Cobb went on to get her bachelor of arts degree from Westminster College in Fulton in 2003. She then completed her masters degree in 2007 from William Woods University prior to earning her administration specialization in 2017.
"I am looking forward to working at Wellsville-Middletown R-I," said Cobb. "Wellsville-Middletown R-I is a good school district with a supportive community. I expect to spend a lot of time this first year asking questions for a better understanding of the district and community."
