Brad Robinson of Indianapolis was named the National Women’s Assistant Coach of the Year for the 2020 NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field season by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
This is the first national honor for Robinson, who just wrapped up his fourth year with the Greyhounds.
Robinson oversaw an impressive effort by his distance athletes throughout the regular season. UIndy hit four automatic qualifying marks, which included NCAA DII-leading times in both the 800 from Berenice Cleyet-Merle at 2:06.80 and the 5000 from Lauren Bailey at 16:14.16.
The Greyhounds were especially strong at the GLVC Indoor Championships, where they posted event titles in the 800, mile and 5000 with Cleyet-Merle and Bailey doing the honors (Cleyet-Merle won the 800 and mile; Bailey won the 5000 in a conference record-setting time).
