NEW ORLEANS — The postseason honors continue to roll in for the Lee University cross country program and head coach Caleb Morgan. The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association announced the regional athletes and coaches of the year for the 2017 season on Wednesday, and Morgan was selected as the South Region Men’s Coach of the Year.
"I am very thankful to receive this honor,” said Morgan. “This award is not possible without the hard work and dedication of my wife, Kristin, my assistant, Joseph Crook, and, most of all, our student-athletes. Everyone bought into what we wanted to accomplish this season and understood the goals of our program. This award is a testament to our team and all those involved with this program."
Morgan also received the honor following the 2016 regionals where the Flames won their first of two straight South Region championships. The fifth-year coach was named the Gulf South men’s and women’s cross country Coach of the Year, after both squads won the GSC Championship in October.
The Flames and Lady Flames continue to prepare for the 2017 NCAA Division II National Championships that will be held Nov. 18 in Evansville, Ind.
