Linfield Christian School in Temecula has announced the re-organization of its athletic department. Timm MacDonnell, who had been the Athletic Director for the past two years, has accepted a similar position at his alma mater on the East coast.

The athletic department will now span K-12 grades (elementary, middle and high schools) under the leadership of John Broussard and Amber Young. The new department will be headquartered in the high school and will provide leadership for co-curricular athletic programming across all three levels.

Broussard will serve as Linfield’s Athletic Director. He has been at Linfield for seven years with experience in administration at both the middle and high school levels. He has eleven years of coaching experience (elementary, middle school, freshman, JV and varsity). Broussard is the current president of the Christian Football League and the vice-president of the Inland Valley Inner Scholastic Association.

Broussard played basketball at Linfield College in Oregon where he served as team captain and was awarded the 2003 Defensive Player of the Year. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Education, a Master’s degree in Curriculum instruction and a second Master’s degree in Educational Administration.

Young will serve as Linfield’s Associate Athletic Director. She is also beginning her seventh year at Linfield. Since taking over Linfield’s Track & Field program in 2007, the team has won five Ambassador League Championships. Young was named Ambassador League Track & Field Coach of the year in 2012, 2013 and 2014. She was a three-sport athlete in high school and played soccer at Whitworth College where she was named Senior Athlete of the Year.

Young earned a Master’s degree in Sports Management from the United States Sports Academy; she is also one of the few female to have earned a U.S. Soccer National "A" Coaching license.
