Mother Nature had other plans. July 20, 2013 will live forever in the memory of those associated with Ursuline College.  Early that morning, in the blink of an eye, a tornado swept through our beautiful, tranquil campus and tore a hole in our heart.

Ursuline College cross country/track and field coach Ralph White can be a very convincing person. On a recent trip to the NCAA Indoor National Championships with sophomore Nicole Burlinson, White talked a cleaning lady at a hotel into allowing Burlinson to use the pool so she could get loose between her running workouts.

Burlinson, White and assistant coach Maddy Outman were in Winston-Salem, N.C., for the NCAA Division II Indoor National Championships in mid-March because from the moment Burlinson stepped foot on campus in August of 2012, White convinced her she could become an All-American.

Commit to wellness with Ursuline’s Arrows Walking Club

By Ralph White, Ursuline College Cross Country and Track and Field Coach

When I came to Ursuline to coach cross country and track and field in 2012, I saw a small school with a close-knit community who cares about helping each and every student. I also saw a community that cares about helping those less fortunate through prayer and service. My son has long been an advocate and activist for clean water and sanitation initiatives in Africa, and I saw an opportunity to help this worthy cause, get the name of Ursuline College out, engage the community, and benefit the health and wellness of our own community through a fundraising race. This idea became Ursuline’s annual Walk for Water, and from that idea the Arrows Walking Club was launched.
