Nick Aguila, American International: 2022 NCAA Division II Men’s Indoor Track & Field National Assistant Coach of the Year

Nick Aguila was named the National Men’s Assistant Coach of the Year. Aguila, in his first year as assistant coach at American International, coached the Yellow Jackets’ distance crew to a fantastic year on the track. Athletes coached by Aguila scored 23 of AIC’s 25 points at the 2022 NCAA DII Indoor Track & Field Championships with a national title in the mile, a runner-up effort in the 800 and a fourth-place finish in the distance medley relay. Callum Elson, Aguila’s prized pupil who won the NCAA title in the mile, is ranked seventh on the NCAA DII all-time chart in that event with his 3:59.71 from earlier in the season.
