John McDonnell Named National Indoor Track and
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas track and field coach John McDonnell added another honor to his legendary resume on Thursday when the Division I Coaches Association of the U.S. Track Coaches Association named him the Mondo National Indoor Track and Field Coach of the Year.
McDonnell led the Razorbacks to their 17th indoor national title and the 37th national crown overall last weekend when Arkansas easily outdistanced the competition to win the 2003 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. The Razorbacks scored 52 points besting runner-up Auburn (28) by 24 points.
This year’s award is the 26th national coach of the year award in McDonnell’s career. It also marked the second national award for a Razorback by the same organization in less than a week.
Junior All-American Alistair Cragg was named the Mondo National Athlete of the Year by the Division I Coaches Association earlier this week. Cragg earned 20 points in last weekend’s championships earning individual national crowns in the 3,000- and the 5,000-meter runs.
