Sean Conboy Named MBJH Cross Country/Track Head Coach

  • Tuesday, June 27, 2023 – Sean Conboy has been approved by the Mountain Brook Schools Board of Education to lead the Mountain Brook Junior High track and cross country programs. He replaces Randy Stephens who retired in the spring and coached Mountain Brook students for 27 years.

    “Nearly one-third of our students are involved with the cross country and/or track programs at some point during their time here,” MBJH Principal Donald Clayton said. “This position is extremely influential and Sean will be a great leader for our students both inside and outside of the classroom.”

    Conboy has a national certificate for STEM teaching and will teach Science 7. Michael McGovern, the Mountain Brook High School Track/Cross Country head coach, said Sean is an established coach who will bring great energy and enthusiasm to junior high students.

    “He was someone we targeted right away,” McGovern said. “I have admired him as an athlete and now a colleague for some time and I know he will provide great value for our young Spartan runners. Our program is fortunate to have a large footprint in this community and I know he will foster great relationships and continue our success at the junior high level.”

    Conboy expressed his appreciation for MBJH and looks forward to meeting students.

    “I couldn’t be more excited to teach and coach some tremendous students at MBJH,” Conboy said. “I grew up in Birmingham and know there is a unique distinction among this school system as well as the track/cross country programs. I am eager to foster relationships with students and help them maximize their potential in and out of the classroom.”

    Conboy is a graduate of Boston College where he ran cross country, indoor and outdoor track. There he double majored in Biology and Applied Psychology and Human Development before earning his Master of Arts degree in Education.
