Former Nolensville track and field and cross country coach Brook Koblitz won some hardware competing in the Maccabiah Games in Israel.

Brooke Koblitz picked up several medals while competing in the 21st Maccabiah Games as part of the United States delegation in Israel this month.

Koblitz, a former track and field and cross country coach at Nolensville, won a gold medal in the 10K in 39 minutes, 32.03 seconds and added a bronze medal in the 3000 meters, finishing in 10:13.72. Israel’s Karajan Halabi won gold in the 3000 in 10:09.08.

Koblitz, 29, also earned a silver medal as part of the 4X400 relay team that finished in 4:13.93.

The Maccabiah Games, which are held every four years, concluded July 27 after nearly two weeks of competition in 18 cities throughout Israel. More than 80 countries were represented.

Koblitz joined the Trevecca Nazarene coaching staff in both the track and field and cross country programs in January. She was the first track and field and cross country coach at Nolensville when the young school opened in 2016. She coached the Nolensville girls track team to a third-place showing at state in her final year leading the program in 2021.

She also coached at the Maccabiah Games this month as an assistant for the under-18 track and field athletes. Koblitz attended Centennial High School in Georgia, where she was a three-sport athlete, and also competed in college at the University of Georgia.
