Check Out The NCAA DIII XC Coaches Panel On Thursday
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate #D3Week than to livestream a virtual panel discussion featuring five successful cross country coaches at the NCAA Division III level, put together by those same five successful cross country coaches at the NCAA Division III level.
Beginning tomorrow at 2 pm ET, join Bobby Van Allen of Johns Hopkins, Matthew Barreau of Lewis & Clark, Jordan Carpenter of Pomona-Pitzer, Dan Moore of SUNY Geneseo and Jeff Stiles of Washington (Mo.) as they discuss various topics, including their backgrounds and what makes coaching on the NCAA Division III level special, among others.
We will stream the discussion live on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
If you want to know a little bit more about each of those coaches, you’re in luck!
