Head Coach: Younne Reid

Originally from St Ann , Jamaica , Coach Reid has been part of the SUNO Track Team coaching staff for six years. He attended Holmwood Technical High School and G. C. Foster College of Physical Education and Sport in Spanish Town, Jamaica. He also is a proud graduate of Southern University at New Orleans, where he earned a Bachelors degree in management information systems. 

His training in Track & Field began at a young age. He went on to join the Racers Track Club, training alongside Olympic Medalist Usain Bolt. That is when his love for coaching began. He was tutored by the great Glenn Mills, and spent a brief period as part of the coaching staff.

Coach Reid's fondest memories as a student athlete are from his time at Holmwood Technical, where he was on one of the few teams to medal at the Boys’ and Girls’ Championships and a part of the only Holmwood team -- to date -- to win Gold in the 4x100 meter relay at the Penn Relays.

He enjoys working with SUNO’s Track & Field team, alongside Coach Yhann Plummer. He hopes to continue guiding student athletes and leading SUNO to success, firsts, and records in Track & Field. His personal goals at SUNO are to assist Plummer in recruiting more athletes, and to coach the Lady Knights to more victories
