WCU coach Cale McDaniel ’10 MAEd ’13 earned men’s and women’s Coach of the Year honors. Earlier in the year, the men’s track and field team captured its fifth straight Southern Conference Indoor Championship, downing second place Samford by just three points. The women came up just short of winning their third title in the last five years as they fell to Samford by 11 points.
