Big congrats to Run SMART coach Chris Miltenberg for being named the National Women’s Coach of the Year by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Association after bringing home Georgetown University’s first ever NCAA title in Women’s Cross Country.
On Monday, with Miltenberg at the helm, the Georgetown women’s cross country team won its first national championship in program history. A storybook ending to the season for Miltenberg, a 2003 graduate of Georgetown, to bring a national championship back to his alma mater where not only he competed, but so did his wife.
“‘This is an incredible honor to be recognized by our entire coaches association,” Miltenberg said. “It is again a testament to the great effort our entire team put forth – not only on Monday to win a national championship – but the work they did and unrelenting belief they had in each other.”
Both Alicia Shay and Heidi Peoples have won national championships individually but Milt is our first coach to bring home a national title as a coach! We’re really proud and honored to have him as part of our Project. Way to go, Milt!
