Joe Jaketic H e a d C o a c h // S e v e n t h S e a s o n Entering his seventh season at the helm of the cross country team, Joe Jaketic will have his work cut out for him, as he continues to build the Viking program into one of the top teams in the Horizon League. A Cleveland State graduate in 1972, Jaketic has never been able to shake his enthusiasm for the Vikings, and that has truly carried over into his head coaching career. Last year, Jaketic guided the squad to its best season in program history, culminating with a fourth place finish at the Horizon League Championship. CSU’s fourth place finish at the 2011 championship marked the highest finish in program history. Over his seven years at the helm of the cross country team, Jaketic has continued to build the program into a Horizon League contender year-in and year-out. He has worked hard on the recruiting trail to bring in student-athletes that not only succeed on the cross country course, but also in the classroom since he has a personal philosophy that academics come first in his program. During his tenure, 22 student-athletes have earned John Konstantinos Athletic Academic Honors, including seven who earned the accolade during all four years of their career. Since the 2006 season, the Vikings have earned USTFCCCA All-Academic Team honors four times (2011, 2010, 2009, 2008), been named Cleveland State’s ‘Best of the Best’ three times (2011, 2010, 2006) and won the Academic Progress Rate Award twice (2009, 2008). Prior to becoming head coach, Jaketic served as the equipment manager for CSU athletics. He retired from that position in December of 2008 after 37 years. Jaketic ran cross country at Maple Heights High School and spent time running at Ohio University before transferring to run cross country and track at Cleveland State. While a student at CSU, Jaketic was a member of the Viking cross country team and spent two years in the equipment room as a part-time job before being offered the equipment manager position in 1972.

K at e P at t o n A s s i s ta n t C o a c h // F o u rt h S e a s o n Kate Patton is in her fourth season as an assistant cross country coach at Cleveland State. Patton was an assistant coach at St. Joseph Academy H.S. during the 2007 season, coaching the team to an 11th place finish at the OHSAA State Cross Country Meet. While at St. Joseph’s, she provided weekly nutrition presentations with topics including meal timing, calcium, iron and hydration. She also counseled athletes on appropriate pre-and post-run meals and hydration, while also analyzing runners three day meal records to assess if they were meeting the estimated nutrition needs. A 2006 graduate of the University of Dayton, Patton earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Dietetics. She is currently completing coursework toward a Master’s of Education in Exercise Science at CSU. In addition, Patton is serving as a clinical dietitian at the Cleveland Clinic and is a member of the Left Ventricular Assist Device team. She completed a dietetic internship at the Clinic in 2006-07, working through a program that was comprised of 26 weeks of clinical, nine weeks of food service, four weeks of community and four weeks of sales and marketing. Patton is a member of the American Dietetic Association, the Cleveland Dietetic Association and the Cleveland West Road Runners Club. A two-time qualifier and participant in the Boston Marathon, Patton has also competed in the Columbus and Georgia Marathons. She was awarded the Elizabeth L. Shroeder Award of Excellence in 2006, which is presented the to Outstanding Senior in the Food and Nutrition Program at Dayton.
