Head Coach- 3rd Season

Rustin Nyce begins his third season as head men's and women's cross country coach in 2017. A 2002 graduate of Goshen College and former Maple Leaf track and cross country runner, Nyce returned to his alma mater as head coach after spending three seasons as an assistant cross country and track coach at GC, sandwiched around six seasons (2008-13) as the head boys cross country coach at Fairfield High School.

At Goshen, Nyce's cross country and track teams have combined to post national-qualifying times in 21 events in the first two years, claiming four All-American honors and All-Crossroads League recognition four times. His programs have produced 30 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes.

While at Fairfield, Nyce oversaw two teams that qualified for semistate and three individual regional qualifiers. During the regular season, his teams racked up the most dual-meet wins in Fairfield history. In his concurrent tenure as an assistant track coach specializing in distance, the Falcons broke five of their eight school records in distance events and seven 4x800 relay teams advanced to regionals.

Nyce is an avid runner himself, participating in races from 5K to 50 kilometers (31.1 miles), and holds Level 1 coaching certification from USA Track & Field. He and his wife, Kimberly, have four children: Roman (8), Gavin (5), Alden (2), and Isla (1).
