Thomas Named MIAA Coach of the Year
KANSAS CITY - Lincoln University track & field head coach Victor Thomas was named 2011 MIAA Indoor Women's Track & Field Coach of the Year, the league office announced Wednesday. Thomas helped guide the Blue Tigers to a dominating 32-point win at the MIAA Indoor Championships in late February, as the team compiled 113 points. Three Blue Tiger individuals, Shanna Kay Wright, Nyoka Cole and Judith Riley all came away with titles, while the 4x4 relay also took the top spot to help the team to the overall crown.
The award for Thomas comes on the heels of being named U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) South Central Region Women's Coach of the Year for the fourth straight year and seventh time in his career.
