Long-time Walsh Jesuit Coach, Pat Ritchie to Retire; Tony Dipre ’06 and David Lee ’87 Named Head Cross Country Coaches

March 7, 2016, Cuyahoga Falls, OH: Long-time Walsh Jesuit men’s cross country and track and field coach, Pat Ritchie will retire at the end of this school year. Ritchie has been the men’s Walsh Jesuit cross country coach since 1980 and the men’s track and field coach since 1999, after 18 seasons as the assistant coach for the Warriors. Ritchie is also a member of the Walsh Jesuit mathematics department. 

Under Coach Ritchie’s direction, the Warrior cross country teams have qualified for the state meet 23 times, winning two state titles and finishing second five times. He has also lead the men’s track and field team to three district titles and two district runner-up finishes in the past twelve seasons. Ritchie is a member of the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), USA Track and Field and the Summit Athletic Running Club. Furthermore, Coach Ritchie has earned a Level One Certification from USA Track & Field for the sports of track and field, cross country, and long distance running. In 2013, Ritchie was inducted into the Ohio Association of Track and Cross Country Hall of Fame. 

“We are both grateful to Walsh Jesuit for believing in the idea of having co-head coaches, and we believe that together we can provide the best experience for every runner on the team,” said Dipre and Lee in a joint statement. “The school is taking a chance on a new coaching idea, and we are honored and excited to continue the rich tradition of Walsh Jesuit men’s cross country that Coach Ritchie has established. We both ran for Pat, and would like to thank him for all of his guidance, passion and dedication that he has put into this program. We look forward to building upon the tradition that he worked so hard to establish over the many years serving the Walsh Jesuit community.”

Coach Tony Dipre is a 2006 graduate of Walsh Jesuit.  As a running Warrior, he ran four seasons of cross country and track and field under Ritchie. Coach Dipre graduated magna cum laude from Allegheny College in 2011, earning his B.A. in Religious Studies & Neuroscience.  During his collegiate career, Dipre ran at three NCAA National Championships in XC and four NCAA National Championships in track and field.  Dipre graduated a four-time NCAA Division III All-American, which included a national championship in the distance medley relay in 2011, and left as the school record holder in the mile.  He also was awarded 1st Team Capitol One/COSIDA Academic All-American his senior year.  

Along with taking over as the co-head coach of the men's cross-country program, he is a teacher at Walsh Jesuit as a member of the theology department.  Coach Dipre is USTFCCA Technical Coaching certified, as well as a member of the Ohio Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches. 

Coach David Lee is a 1987 Walsh Jesuit graduate and has been teaching and coaching at Walsh Jesuit since 2004. He has taught in different places around the world, including one year in Japan, three and a half in Africa, and three at a local public high school. He was a Peace Corps volunteer in Zimbabwe, where he taught English and helped local cooperatives secure finances to start up small businesses. After his service, he gave educational tours in Yellowstone National Park during the summer and winter for three years. Coach Lee teaches the Advanced Placement Senior English and World Literature classes at Walsh Jesuit. He received a B.A. in English literature and history from Miami University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Kent State University. 

Coach Lee, though not on the varsity team, was a member of the Walsh Jesuit 1984 Cross Country State Championship team. Lee also competed in two regional meets and was a senior captain for Coach Ritchie in 1986. 

A men’s track and field coach has not been named.
