Nashville, Tenn. - Tennessee State University Director of Athletics Teresa Phillips has announced the promotion of Tigerbelles head coach Chandra Cheeseborough-Guice to Director of Track and Field over the men and women's programs. Cheeseborough-Guice will supervise and direct the day-to-day operations for the Tigerbelles and Flying Tigers track and field teams. It will be the first time in TSU Athletic history that one coach will head both programs. Courtesy: Tennessee State Athletics

The announcement comes after the departure of men's head coach Kelly Carter who resigned after accepting an assistant coach position at Middle Tennessee State in nearby Murfreesboro, Tenn.

"When Coach Carter left for another opportunity, we looked at other models for men and women's track and field programs in the conference and nationally," Phillips, TSU Director of Athletics, commented. "We recognized that we had an individual who had a reputation nationally, as well as internationally, already on staff, and who could coach both men and women. Coach Cheeseborough was excited at the possibility and we see it as a "win-win" for both programs." Coach Cheeseborough-Guice has coached the women's team since 1994 leading the program to six Ohio Valley Conference championship titles. The crowns include wins in 2001 (outdoor), 2002 (indoor and outdoor), 2003 (indoor), and 2008 (indoor and outdoor). She is also a four-time OVC Coach of the Year and in 1999 served as the interim men's coach during the summer while monitoring recruitment until the hiring of Sanford Strong that year. "I'm excited about the new position and think both programs are headed in the right direction. A lot of programs across the country are combining both programs and I think it's a benefit based on the savings in budget," said Cheeseborough-Guice. "It will help the program strengthen recruiting efforts. I also expect the change to build unity among the teams and in years to come, I would like to see both teams win the OVC Championship together." In 2011, the Tigerbelles finished fifth (indoor) and seventh (outdoor) in the team rankings at the OVC Track and Field Championships. For the Flying Tigers, they concluded the indoor and outdoor championships in fourth place. Cheeseborough-Guice has built a strong reputation among the track and field collegiate and international coaching ranks. In 2008, she was named the sprints coach for the 2008 USA Team that competed in the Beijing, China Olympics. USA captured 23 medals which included 10-gold, eight-silver, and five bronze medals. In 2009, she served as the women's head coach for Team USA at the 2009 IAAF World Outdoor Championships in Berlin, Germany. At the IAAF under Cheeseborough, the team collected 22 medals overall, winning more events than any other country to dominate the placing table with 231 points. Team USA registered 10-gold, six-silver and six bronze medals along with several outstanding performances. As an athlete she was named to three United States Olympic teams.

This particular program allows students in Tennessee to experience globalization first hand while being exposed to everyday living and activities in China. While on the trip, the students will receive three college credits in either a Logistics or History course.

Daniecce Ward/TSU Tigerbelles

Ward, a nursing major and a native of Milwaukee, Wis., recently finished her junior year and is carrying a 3.5 grade point average. She will take part in the program from May 8-28.

Ward will study Introduction to Logistics and Supply Chain Management. The course examines the expanding field of efficient computer supported warehouses and logistics from an operations management standpoint. Topics will include supply chain management, order processing, traffic management, electronic data interchange, handling and tracking shipments, scheduling of work, diagramming work and product flow, safety programs, and security issues. "I count it as a blessing, honor and indeed a privilege to be selected for this great life changing experience," said Ward. "I'm truly thankful that I was selected over the numerous amounts of students that applied for the program." Ward's venture comes a week after she completed a career season on the track.

In addition to studying overseas through the program, one purpose is to strengthen the pertinent relations between the U.S. and China. The program will primarily take place at Lida University located in the city of Shanghai and will also included a three day tour of Beijing. The trip will include visits to the The Great Wall of China and the home of the 2008 Olympics, The Bird's Nest and Olympic Circle. The location gives the students a great opportunity to experience the historical, cultural, and geographical importance of China and provides the foundation to understanding the people, history, culture and government of a civilization that is more than 5,000 years old. In addition, the program also shows the influence of ancient Chinese medicine, art and religion on the world and the way in which China attempts to balance economical and political development with ancient customs, rituals, and beliefs.
