The Georgetown University Track and Field program announced the addition of Marlo Mincey to their staff in August of 2009. Prior to her arrival on the Hilltop, Mincey spent two years at Fort Valley State University as the head coach of track & field and cross country.
In two years at FVSU, Mincey coached 22 national qualifiers, 19 All-Americans and two national champions in Antoinette Ogelsby (triple jump - 12.44m / 40-9 3/4) and Ricardo Lockette (200-meter: 20.62). Ogelsby was third in the nation in the long jump (6.09m / 19-11 3/4) and was the 2008 South Region Field Athlete of the Year. Lockette was named the 2009 South Region Track Athlete of the Year.
The 2009 SIAC Coach of the Year, Mincey has coached three of the top Division II sprinters in Xavier Hair (100-meter: 10.32), Jeffrey Mosely (100-meter: 10.31) and Lockette (100-meter: 10.28).
The men's 4x400m and 4x100m relays consistently posted one of the top three times in Division II with the 4x400m relay recording a time of 3:07.38 in 2008 and 3:08.41 in 2009. The 4x100m team recorded a time of 40.18 in 2008 and 40.01 in 2009.
Prior to her time at Fort Valley, Mincey had a successful stint at Georgia Southern University, where she was the strength, speed & conditioning coach for Olympic sports. She also coached for one year at Jacksonville (Fla.) University.
Mincey was a member of the track & field team at Georgia Southern, and had an outstanding career for the Eagles. She was a 12-time All-Southern Conference selection and was named Most Valuable Player of the team as a freshman.
Mincey still has her name in the record books at Georgia Southern with four school marks that remain untouched to this day.
The Hazlehurst, Ga., native earned both her undergraduate (exercise science) and graduate (sports administration) degrees from Georgia Southern.
