NEW ORLEANS – Al Carius from North Central College and Dan Schwamberger from UW-Eau Claire were named Division III National Cross Country Coaches of the Year Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Carius, was named men’s coach of the year as his North Central College Cardinals took the NCAA Division III national title on Saturday, their first since 1999. With all seven competing runners earning All-America status, the Cardinals decimated the field, finishing with just 50 points, and the fourth-lowest winning total in the meet's history.

In addition, Carius, in his 44th year at North Central, guided the Cardinals to eight invitational wins this season, attaining a perfect score of 15 in three races this fall which included a sweep for their 36th- consecutive College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin crown this season. The Cardinals also won the NCAA Midwest Region title by a commanding 84-point spread and topped Division I Illinois by 16 points at the Illinois Intercollegiate Championships.

Women’s National Coach of the Year Dan Schwamberger, in his third year at the helm at UW-Eau Claire, led the Bluegolds to their second national title in program history and their first in NCAA’s Division III on Saturday. The Bluegolds edged out St. Lawrence, 171-180, for their first national crown since claiming the NAIA Championship in 1984.

This season Schwamberger’s Blugolds also won the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title for the third year in a row and the NCAA Division III Midwest Regional for the second-straight year.

St. Lawrence’s Wendy Pavlus and Lynchburg’s Ricky Flynn were honored as the USTFCCCA Division III Cross Country National Athletes of the Year on Saturday following the conclusion of the national championship races.

In addition, 70 student-athletes earned USTFCCCA All-America honors following Saturday’s races.

Some programs in LAREDO you use will be more complicated than others. I have owned around 7 or 8 different LAREDO DVD and have 3 favorites that i use. All 3 of them are as simple as inserting the LAREDO DVD COLLECTION and clicking "copy".

Hogan scarpe , is considered as an all time, all generation brand of sneakers, that released Hogan scarpe donna variety. Still shining with its beguiling charm in the athletic hogan donna industry since its launch dated nearly 25 years back. Interestingly this Hogan scarpe uomo was named after the plane Air Force One, which carries the President of the United States.

If you're burdened with Christian Louboutin Sale but none of the right type then this will never ever happen when you have the Christian Louboutin Pumps at your feet. A pair that you'll be able to get from the great collection of footwear is the Christian Louboutin Boots Josefa Sandals Brown. This is most likely the first time that you see these Christian Louboutin Sandals of three surprisingly different grains of leather being employed together and making such a great design.
