Contact: Tim Ertle

Follow Beaumont Athletics on Twitter

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio – Joe Jovanovski has been named the new head soccer coach at Beaumont, the school’s Athletic Director Tim Ertle announced Tuesday (July 25) afternoon.

Jovanovski played soccer at Elyria Catholic High School where he was an All-Lorain County performer. He also earned All-Greater Cleveland honors as a senior.

After two years at Lorain County Community College where he was a center midfielder and team captain, Jovanovski attended Tiffin University and played two years for the Dragons before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English.

In 2013, Tiffin split the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference regular season title with Ohio Dominican University and went on to make the NCAA Division II Tournament as a regional qualifier. In his senior season, the Dragons won the GLIAC crown outright and returned to the NCAA Division II Tournament.

Jovanovski was most recently coaching soccer at Benedictine High School.

“Joe Jovanovski will do a really nice job as the head soccer coach at Beaumont School,” Tiffin University Assistant Athletic Director and Jovanovski’s former head coach Rudy Brownell said. “The strong coaches I have been around have always possessed a positive attitude and had great enthusiasm for the game and I see that in Joe. When he was a player, Joe was always a pleasure to be around and he had a tremendous knowledge of the game. I know he’ll work hard to teach the game and grow the program.”

Girls Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Track · Former Beaumont Star Emily Infeld Keeps on Running


The following piece was done by The Plain Dealer’s Dennis Manoloff. Please click here for the article and a photo gallery.

By Dennis Manoloff, The Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Emily Infeld is a woman on the move. She is not comfortable unless she is running somewhere, preferably at a long distance.

Infeld, 27, is a Northeast Ohio native and former track-and-field standout at Beaumont School. Among her accomplishments at Beaumont: not one, not two, not three, but … four 800-meter state titles.

Infeld went on to excel at Georgetown, then turned professional. She is based in Portland, Ore., as a member of Bowerman Track Club.

In the summer of 2015, Infeld earned a bronze medal in the 10,000 meters at the World Championships in Beijing, China. Last summer, she finished 11th in the 10,000 at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Earlier this summer, Infeld placed second in the 10,000 at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Sacramento, Calif. She qualified for the World Championships in August in London.

It has not been a smooth road over the years for Infeld, who has dealt with stress fractures and other injuries. Many would have folded, but Infeld perseveres.

DMan’s World recently tracked down Infeld during her training for worlds. Phone correspondence was not possible, but email was.

DW: From what city/country are you typing these answers?

EI: I am writing from St. Moritz, Switzerland, where we are training at altitude leading into the world championships.

DW: Your worlds schedule?

EI: I am running the 10,000 meters on Aug. 5 at 9:35 p.m. London time (Editor’s note: 4:35 p.m. Eastern Time).

DW: How long have you been training for worlds, and where?

EI: We train year-round. There is a down period but I only take a couple days off each year. We go through different training phases and cycles during the year but all of our training has been geared toward the world championships in August.

DW: Fondest recollection of your days at Beaumont?

EI: Winning the state track title has always been such a fond memory. Loved my teammates, and our coach, James Emery, is fabulous! I always had so much fun and truly grew to love running in high school.

DW: Fondest recollection of your days at Georgetown?

EI: Winning the NCAA cross-country team title my senior year was amazing. I had such talented, hard-working teammates and the environment was amazing thanks to our passionate coach, Chris Miltenberg. I felt so lucky to be surrounded by people who loved the sport and really taught me great lessons about hard work, passion, grit, and becoming my best self. I always look back fondly on my time in high school and college.

DW: Smartest person you’ve ever met?

EI: My dad is the smartest person I know. He always has been a role model.

DW: Favorite dinner food? Favorite snack food?

EI: I love pizzaaa! My favorite snack food is banana on peanut butter toast with cinnamon and honey.

DW: How much do you eat during an average day of training? Are there carbohydrate restrictions?

EI: I have no dietary restrictions and I don’t count calories, so I honestly don’t know how much I consume. I eat constantly during the day and just make sure I eat balanced.

DW: Toughest workout you’ve ever done, any level?

EI: Mile, mile, 800, 800, 4×400 — then repeat. 8 miles of tough work, and doing this at altitude compounds!

DW: Best race you’ve ever run, any level. A race where you said: ‘I don’t think I could have run it any better or felt any better?’

EI: The 10K at the 2015 world championships. I was the most composed I’ve been racing and had a fabulous last three laps, which enabled me to sneak into third. I honestly never fathomed medaling at this level and I think I just ran the absolute best race I could that day. It was by far my best tactical race ever.

DW: Best part about being a professional runner? Do you get an endless supply of shoes?

EI: I am sponsored by Nike and get so much gear and shoes. I love Nike. I feel lucky to be sponsored by them.

DW: When you run long distances for training, do you listen to music? If so, what?

EI: I don’t listen to music when I run.

DW: I read where Beaumont coach Emery said of you in 2015: ‘She’ll kill me for saying this, but she will be a great marathoner.’ What did he mean?

EI: I am not sure — ha ha. You’ll have to ask him! But I think he means that I have strength. I am a ways away from marathoning. The marathon is a beast I would love to tackle at some point, but I’m not sure when.

DW: You have a reputation for being super-nice. What are the roots?

EI: My parents are fabulous people, and I give them the credit for the person I am. I always try to be kind and positive and just enjoy life. This is not always the case and I definitely have really hard days, but I try to look on the bright side.

DW: Advice to youngster who wants to be Emily Infeld?

EI: My advice to any young runner is to be passionate and have fun. Don’t take life or running too seriously when you’re young. I see so many young kids who burn out just trying to act like a professional. Be a kid for as long as possible and let yourself develop naturally — and have fun!!!

DW: You’ve dealt with more than your share of injuries over the years. How have you remained resilient and unwilling to give in?

EI: Injuries are awful. There’s no way around it. I have thought about quitting so many times, but I was so focused on fulfilling my Olympic dream, which kept me going!

DW: Most picturesque training location?

EI: Switzerland is the most beautiful place I’ve trained.

DW: Favorite athlete growing up? Favorite athlete now? Do you remain a Cleveland sports fan?

EI: Growing up, I loveeedd Kenny Lofton because he was so fast! I also looked up to my older sister, Maggie, in all sports.

My favorite athlete now is LeBron. He is just amazing, and I think all he has done for Cleveland is astounding. He is just an incredible person whom I would love to meet at some point. I am a huge Cleveland sports fan!!!!!!

DW: Most miles run in one day?

EI: Twenty-two.

DW: Fondest recollection of 2016 Olympics? Biggest-name athlete you met?

EI: Having my family in Rio was just incredible. We actually didn’t stay at the village so I didn’t get to meet any of the other athletes.

DW: Near- and distant-future for you, on/off course?

EI: Near-future is more track racing. Distant-future is maybe marathoning, if my body can handle the training. Career-wise I am all over the board, so I will get back to you on that!
