The mission of Geneva’s track & field team is to provide a safe, supportive, and fun environment for student-athletes to have a positive and meaningful experience participating on a middle and high school athletic team. Track & field is a lifelong sport that is accessible to all, and with eighteen events the team welcomes all to join.
The team’s training development program builds throughout the season. They train hard, recover, and repeat! The coaches truly care about the well-being of each athlete in achieving his or her own personal goals. Through hard work, dedication, determination, and perseverance, anything can happen and anything is possible! Team camaraderie is a big deal on the track & field team, and many lifetime memories are made while training and competing.

Coach Cash, as a lot of kids call him, joined Geneva’s coaching staff as the varsity track and field coach in 2020–2021. In his first year the team had 182 personal records and 31 school records. He started his career in coaching while still in high school, coaching baseball and football, and adopted the role of pole vault coach for his track team when they didn’t have a coach. His mentor and coach, Ron Evans, recruited him to professional coaching a few years later, and together they won ten state championships. Since that time, Coach Cashman has coached over 80 state champions, 11 state record holders, 15 national champions, and well over 100 All American athletes. Prior to coming to TGS, he spent five years at Lake Mary High School where his Rams set 30 school records, won 3 straight conference and district titles, and were runners up twice at regionals.
Coach Cashman is a Level I and II certified coach through USA Track and Field. He also went back to school, earning a BS in Exercise Physiology and Sport Science at UCF. He studied strength and conditioning under Frank Costello while coaching at the University of Maryland, as well as biomechanics under Tom Ecker, formerly of Arkansas State University through the old TAC clinics for Olympic development.
A couple of key phrases that set Coach Cashman apart as a coach:
“I love you enough to tell you the truth … even if it hurts a little.”
“Are you better today than you were yesterday, and did you do enough to be better tomorrow?”
“Let the height of your desire and the depth of your resolve be the measure of your success.”
Coach Cashman, along with his wife, Lisa, and stepson, Griffin, live in Casselberry and attend St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Oviedo.
Inspiring students to love beauty, think deeply, and pursue Christ's calling.
