Nov. 23, 2011

WASHINGTON - Just two days after the thrilling NCAA Championships that saw Georgetown win its first-ever women's cross country national championship, Head Women's Cross Country Coach Chris Miltenberg is named the Peter Tegen National Women's Coach of the Year by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

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."

The team was led by now eight-time All-American Emily Infeld (University Heights, Ohio/Beaumont) who ran to a fourth-place finish over the 6,000-meter race. With all point scorers finishing in the top 70 overall and tallying no more than 50 points apiece, the Hoyas won the championship with 162 points, defeating second-place Washington (170). Georgetown's eight-point margin of victory is the lowest since 2003 when Stanford's 120 points edged out BYU with 128.
