Logan, Utah - Utah State veteran track and field head coach Gregg Gensel was named the NCAA Division I Mountain Region Women's Coach of the Year as announced Monday by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
"I am always honored to get awards like this, but it is the work that my assistants do and the way the athletes compete that make these awards possible," Gensel said. "I am deeply honored that my peers voted for me."
This is Gensel's second Mountain Region Coach of the Year honor as he garnered the accolade in 2007 on the men's side. In his time at USU, Gensel has now been honored with Coach of the Year accolades 35 times. He has also led Utah State to 37 track & field and cross country conference championships while coaching 33 All-Americans.
Gensel was also named the Western Athletic Conference Women's Coach of the Year after leading the Aggie women to their first WAC indoor title and the first conference indoor title since the USU women won the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation title in 1994.
Entering his 30th year at Utah State, Gensel has been the women's head coach for 19 years along with being at the helm of the Aggie men for 24 years. Gensel is assisted by long-time assistant coach Steve Reeder along with assistant coaches Yogi Teevens, Matt Ingebritsen and Joel Johnson as well as former USU track and field athletes Nick Karren and Kirstin Flesher as volunteer coaches.
Utah State's men and women's track and field teams will wait to see who will receive at large bids to compete at the 2012 NCAA Indoor Championships in Nampa, Idaho on Friday and Saturday, March 9-10. The field will be announced Monday evening on www.ncaa.com by 5 p.m. (MT).
