|Title:||Assistant Coach (Strength & Conditioning) (2012-)|
Gabe Haberly enters his sixth season under head coach John Smith, coaching primarily the pole vault, javelin and sprinters.
Since his arrival, the Bruins have accomplished some amazing things. Haberly helped the women’s team win the NWC Title in 2013 and 2014. He also helped Seth Nonnenmacher earn conference champion in the men’s javelin, and a sixth-place finish at nationals, earning an All-American honor in 2015. Since then, Nonnenmacher captured back-to-back national titles in the men's javelin at the NCAA Div. III National Championships in 2017 and 2018. In that same season on the women’s side, he helped the Bruins go 1-2-3 in the women’s pole vault at the NWC Conference Championship (Sierra Robertson, Dannah Martin, and Kylie Weatherford). Robertson went on to earn conference champion in the women’s pole vault, while Martin won it the year before in 2014. He was recently named USTFCCCA Men's National Assistant Coach of the Year in 2018.
In 2014, Haberly helped secure a 1-2 finish in the women’s pole vault at the NWC Conference Championship (Martin, Robertson), and in 2013 Martin placed third in that event.
Haberly graduated from Linfield in 2009 with a B.S. in mathematics. He continued his education and earned his M.S. in biomechanics in 2013 from Oregon State University.
A superb athlete at Linfield, Haberly lettered four times in track and field, competing as a decathlete. He was the NWC champion in the javelin in 2006 and pole vaulter in 2009. He placed 13th at the NCAA National Championships in the javelin in 2006. He was a two-time Academic All-American (2006, 2009). He also earned three letters as a quarterback and defensive back at Linfield. He helped the Wildcats win a NWC title and advance to the NCAA Div. III quarterfinals in 2005.
When he’s not coaching Track and Field, Gabe can be spotted coaching the football team in his variety of ways, as well as teaching in HHP and the math department at George Fox.
Gabe attends Safe Haven in McMinnville, Ore., and resides in Newberg.
