Burke Bockman enters his eighth season with the University of Utah women's track and field program, and his fourth season as associate head coach. He oversees the sprinters and hurdlers in addition to assisting the jumpers.
Since beginning his coaching tenure at Utah in 2005, the hurdlers, sprinters and jumpers have broken the indoor school record in eight different events. In addition, his athletes have broken seven outdoor school records.
During the 2012 outdoor season, Bockman guided Brianna LeRoy to the third-best heptathlon performance in school history as she tallied 5,221 points at the Pac-12 Championships, which included an NCAA qualifying performance in the long jump. Bockman also mentored Stephanie Jolley to a seventh-place finish in the Pac-12 Championships and an NCAA qualifying bid in the 400m hurdles. Under Bockman's guidance, former walk-on Rosalie Griffin earned seventh at the Pac-12 Championships and qualified for the NCAA Championships. Bockman also was responsible for the development that led the 4x400m relay team to the second best time in school history with a time of 3:41.12. Bockman had a total of four athletes qualify for the NCAA Championships in 2012.
The indoor season featured two relays, also under Bockman's watch, which broke school records. At the MPSF Championships, the 4x400m relay team of Lauryn McKay, Ali Eisenbeiss, Griffin, and Lucy Yates set a school record time of 3:45.27 finishing seventh overall. The distance medley relay posted a school record at the Alex Wilson Invitational finishing third with a time of 11:05.78. Bockman also oversaw the individual development that led LeRoy to a fourth-place performance in the pentathlon at the MPSF Championships, which also ranks fourth on the school's all-time best performances.
In 2011, Bockman coached Angela Kaplar to school-record hurdles performances in both indoor and outdoor track. Kaplar posted an indoor record time of 8.56 in the 60m hurdles. During the 2011 outdoor season, Kaplar broke her previous 100m hurdles school-record time of 13.90 with a new record time of 13.61 at the Mountain West Conference Championships.
Bockman also oversaw the development of then junior LeRoy in the multi-events. In 2011, LeRoy posted a personal-best heptathlon performance of 5,090 points and had second-place finishes at both the Drake Relays and the MWC Championships. LeRoy also recorded the fifth best long jump in school history with a 19-8.25.
Bockman's first five seasons at Utah saw a total of six all-conference relays teams highlighted by Utah's 2009 NCAA Qualifying 3:38.96 4x400m team.
From 2006-2010, The 400m hurdle group flourished with eight NCAA Qualifiers (Fresqueze 06, Feigt 06&07, Shapard 07-09, Kaplar 09&10). Utah's Chelsea Shapard was consistently in the spotlight winning three consecutive MWC Titles while qualifying for NCAA Championships each of those years. Shapard's career was highlighted by her 13th-place finish at the 2009 NCAA Championships with a time of 48.36 and her appearance at the 2009 U.S.A. Outdoor Championships.
In 2007 Amanda Feigt placed herself as one of the best all around track and field athletes in Utah history. After winning the MWC title in the heptathlon, she qualified for the NCAA Regionals in the long jump and the 400 hurdles. Feigt went on to the NCAA finals in the heptathlon and the 400m hurdles.
During his tenure at Utah, Bockman has coached five Conference Champions, 48 All- Conference Performers, 25 NCAA Qualifier, & eight NCAA Finalist.
Prior to Utah, Bockman spent two years as a graduate assistant coach at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where he helped the Eagles win back-to-back national indoor titles in 2004-05 and the outdoor championship in 2004. The Eagle sprinters and hurdlers flourished, including Derek Toshner (Division III 400m hurdle national champion, Division III Athlete of the Meet in 2004, and 2004 Olympic trials qualifier.)
Bockman also had the privilege of assisting with the training of Andrew Rock as he became the school's first Olympian and won the gold medal in Athens, Greece, as a member of the 4x400-meter relay team. After working with Bockman during the 2005 season, the Olympian went on to receive a silver medal at the World Outdoor Championships in the open 400-meter. Rock also went on to claim gold as a member of USA's 4x400-meter relay team.
In addition to working with Rock in 2005, Bockman saw all five of his UW-La Crosse hurdlers tally national-qualifying marks during the outdoor season. He ended up with four national qualifiers and two All-Americans.
Bockman was a three-time conference champion and a 13-time all-conference honoree at the University of Northern Iowa. He was an NCAA Division I qualifier in the 400-meter hurdles and 4x400-meter relay his senior year. Bockman also qualified at the USA Championships from 2003-2006.
