Infeld Named Mid-Atlantic Track Athlete of the Year; Henner and Miltenberg Named Region Head Coach and Assistant Coach of the Year

Emily Infeld

March 5, 2012

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's track & field program enjoyed a trio of honors as the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) named its regional award winners today. All-American Emily Infeld (University Heights, Ohio/Beaumont) was named the Mid-Atlantic Region Women's Track Athlete of the Year while Director of Track & Field / Cross Country Patrick Henner was named the Mid-Atlantic Region Women's Head Coach of the Year and Associate Head Coach for Track & Field / Head Women's Cross Country Coach Chris Miltenberg was named the Mid-Atlantic Region Women's Assistant Coach of the Year.

Georgetown tallied three of the four awards for the women's Mid-Atlantic Region with Maryland-Eastern Shore grabbing the fourth nod (women's field athlete of the year). Georgetown and TCU, of the Central West Region, are the only two schools to pick up three of four awards on the women's side with no teams making the four-award sweep for either the men or the women.

Infeld received the nod in the midst of an indoor season that saw the eight-time All-American win three individual titles at the BIG EAST Championships in New York. She anchored the women's distance medley relay (DMR) on the first day of the championships and followed up with wins in both the mile and 3,000-meter run on the final day of the championships, leading Georgetown to its seventh BIG EAST Conference Indoor Championships. Infeld's efforts helped garner 30 of the Hoyas' 102 points for the league championship. Infeld picked up her fourth, fifth and sixth BIG EAST individual titles over the two-day event.

Earlier in the season, Infeld ran the second-fastest time in the nation this season in the 3,000-meter run, clocking 9:00.13, a new GU record in the event on February 10. She also anchored the third-fastest national time this season in the DMR when the Hoyas ran a 10:55.95 at the Penn State National Invitational on January 27. This broke the school record by nearly four seconds, a record that was set during the 2011 indoor season.

 

 

Henner earns his first distinction as the Mid-Atlantic Women's Head Coach of the Year after the GU women won its seventh team title in program history at the 2012 BIG EAST Indoor Track & Field Championships. The Hoyas were led by two individual titles from Infeld as well as two relay titles (DMR, 4x400m) as well as a number of strong individual finishes that put the Hoyas 12 points ahead of second-place Cincinnati. Henner's leadership has placed eight times in the top 50 on the national standings list thus far. Henner and his staff were name the 2012 BIG EAST Indoor Track & Field Coaching Staff of the Year.

Miltenberg, whose primary responsibilities are with the middle distance and distance runners, has had a tremendous season as he aided in three of the four individual crowns at the BIG EAST Championships. In his fifth year at his alma mater, Miltenberg's tutelage is responsible for six top-30 marks on the national lists with Infeld and the women's DMR recording NCAA automatic qualifying times.

The Hoyas will head to Nampa, Idaho, on March 9-10 for the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships held at the Jacksons Indoor Track at the Idaho Center.
