Head Cross Country Coach
Seth Roberts love for running is very evident in his coaching. For 21 years, he had a very successful program at Paradise High School. He has enjoyed numerous championships at both varsity men’s and varsity women’s levels, and has coached many athletes at the state level.
Seth participated in both cross-country and track at Butte College. He was the Golden Valley Conference Champion in the 800 meters in 1980 and 800, 1500, in 1981. He went on in the 800 meters to be the NorCal Champion and placed 4th at the state finals. He was honored to receive the title of “Butte College Outstanding Athlete” in 1981. Seth continued his running career at Chico State University, where he was a two-time finalist in the 800 meters of the NCAA National Track and Field Finals.
Coach Roberts is in his 10th as the Butte College Head cross-country coach. Coming off a very fine year, both men’s and women’s teams won the Golden Valley Conference Championships and trips to the state finals in 2013. Seth maintains a positive attitude and he knows what it takes to compete at the college level. He is excited about building strong cross-country teams in both men and women’s levels. Under the direction of coach Roberts, the men’s team has won the Golden Valley Conference Championship nine out of ten years, and the women’s five out of ten years. With strong athletes returning and great leadership, coach Roberts expects to have a very strong men and women’s team in the Fall of 2014.
