Carroll County Times

Carroll Community College is one year away from unveiling its inaugural sports teams, and now those teams have coaches.

Justin Metzger and Amanda Milewski have been named co-coaches of the men’s and women’s cross country teams, and Bill Warburton and Tom O’Brien will serve as head coaches for the women’s and men’s soccer teams, according to a news release from Carroll Community College.

Milewski served for four years as the co-head coach for boys and girls indoor and outdoor track and field teams at Liberty High School, overseeing 175 athletes and six assistant coaches. She was responsible for creating and executing workout plans for the distance athletes.

She most recently coached the boy’s indoor 4x800-meter relay team to a county championship in 2018. In 2015, she coached the girl’s outdoor varsity team to a county championship title and was named Times Girls Outdoor Track Co-Coach of the Year. She is also an certified cross country and track and field official, and is a member of the Western Maryland Track Officials Association.

Milewski, an Elkins, West Virginia, native, became the first female athlete at Franklin & Marshall College to earn All-American honors in two different sports. She is a three-time All-American athlete in track and field, once in the 5,000-meter and twice in the 10,000-meters. Milewski was also an All-American cross country athlete, helping to lead her college team to an NCAA Division III national title.

Milewski earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Franklin & Marshall College. She was twice inducted into the Franklin & Marshall Athletic Hall of Fame, first as an individual in 1996 and then with the national championship team in 2001. She lives in Eldersburg with her husband Mark and three sons.

Metzger brings more than two decades of running experience and eight years of coaching to his new role. He most recently served as the head boy’s cross country coach at Century High School from 2011 through 2016, when the team became a state finalist.

In addition to teaching proper movement mechanics to numerous clients at Blackbird CrossFit in Eldersburg, where he has worked for the past four years, he developed and coached an endurance and recovery class. He has also coached more than three dozen athletes from ages 16-55 to meet their goal of successfully completing, or improving their performance in, a half-marathon.

Metzger has taught math and Advanced Placement statistics since 2010 at Century High School and serves on the Teacher Advisory Council. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Shippensburg University, where he competed in both cross-country and track and field. He resides in Sykesville with his wife Sarah and dog Roscoe.

Warburton will lead the women’s soccer team with more than 15 years of playing experience. He coached at Winters Mill as well as Gerstell Academy, where he led the varsity boy’s team to back-to-back MIAA B Conference finals in 2013 and 2014, winning the title in 2013.

He has served as a board member and coach for several local clubs in Carroll and Frederick counties, and is well known for his futsal training clinics and player development skills. He holds a U.S. Soccer Federation National Youth license and a class D coaching license.

Before joining the Information Systems Department at Carroll Community College in 2017, Warburton served as an assistant professor in the Computer Information Systems Program from 2000-2016.

Warburton earned a Bachelor of Science in forestry from West Virginia University and a master’s in business and management information systems from the University of Baltimore. He lives in Westminster with his wife Maria.

Prior to joining the staff, O’Brien served the past four years as assistant coach of the men’s soccer team at Stevenson University, and was a top player and coach at Towson University.

During his career at Towson, he served as the team captain in both his junior and senior seasons, and was a two-time MVP. He was twice named an All-East Coast Conference selection, and was named to the Division I All-South Team. O'Brien was a winner of the Towson University Unsung Hero award for men’s sports, and in 2000 he was inducted into the Towson University Athletic Hall of Fame.

O’Brien has served as an adjunct faculty member at various local community colleges in business, communications and project management.

In addition to his undergraduate degree in psychology from Towson, he earned an MBA from the University of Baltimore and a master’s in business and technology management from Stevenson University. A native of Baltimore, O’Brien and his wife Donna live in Eldersburg.
