The 2017-18 academic year will be Rachel Sharpe's fourth year as an assistant track & field coach at Hanover College.

She was part of the team that won back-to-back indoor and outdoor HCAC Championships and ran a leg in the 4x400m relay that won the event her senior year. In addition, she currently ranks second all-time in school history in the outdoor 400m with a time of 59.45.
A Health & Movement Studies major, and a member of the Business Scholars Program at Hanover, Sharpe works primarily with the team's long sprints and relay teams.
