WAVERLY, Iowa --- McMurry head coach Barbara Crousen and senior Cody Brotherton won 2005 NCAA Division III South/Southeast Region Coach of the Year and Athlete of the Year honors in men's track and field as presented by the US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
Crousen's selection as men's region coach of the year gives the American Southwest Conference a sweep of the Division III South/Southeast Region coaching awards. Texas Lutheran women's coach Kandice Holamon Erwin was the region's women's coach of the year.
In her seventh season at the Indians' helm, Crousen claimed her third men's region coaching award, earning the honors for the 2000 Outdoor and 2004 Indoor seasons. She led McMurry to its seventh-consecutive American Southwest Conference men's title in April, was voted ASC men's track and field coach of the year and directed 21 all-conference award winners (men and women) at the ASC Championships.
Brotherton was tabbed the region's top male athlete after going 9-1 in the shot put this spring (only loss at Texas Relays University Section A finals) and winning ASC titles in the shot put, discus and hammer throw. In addition, Brotherton threw for an NCAA Division III 2005 season-high of 61 feet and 9 inches at the Angelo State/David Noble Relays on April 16 and is favored to capture his third straight NCAA title. He also was named the region's top male indoor track and field athlete after winning the indoor shot put crown in March at Illinois Wesleyan University.
The south/southeast region encompasses all Division III programs from Florida to Texas.
