GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo head coach Dan Moore swept US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Atlantic Region Men's and Women's Cross Country Coach of the Year honors for the second year in a row, announced Tuesday.
In his third season at the helm of the Geneseo cross country program, Moore garnered his third women's recognition to go along with his second men's honor. He guided both squads to first place at last Saturday's Atlantic Region Championships, marking the third-straight season both teams won titles. In 30 years of the championship, Geneseo became only the second men's team to ever three-peat while the women's 10th-overall title surpassed Cortland for the most by one program.
Under Moore's watch, 12 Knights ran to All-Atlantic Region honors. Senior Kristen Homeyer, juniors Elise Ramirez and Allison Fernandez, sophomores Dana Cebulski, Annibell Coolican and Genny Corcoran and first-year Carissa DiTullio were recognized on the women's side, while seniors Alexander Burks, Isaac Garcia-Cassani, Matt Jorgensen and Connor Pulvidente along with junior John Ripa received men's plaudits.
Two weeks earlier, the women clinched their 17th SUNYAC title in 18 years (seventh-straight) while the men clinched their eighth SUNYAC title in nine years (fourth-straight).
Ranked third nationally entering the week, the Knights' women will be making their 19th-consecutive NCAA Division III Championship appearance. The Geneseo men, which stand fourth in the latest national poll, are headed for their 15th NCAA Championship appearance in as many years. Geneseo currently holds the longest streak for qualifying both its men's and women's cross country teams for the NCAA Division III Championships.
The North Farm Cross Country Course in Elsah, Ill., is the site for this Saturday's national championship races, hosted by Principia. The men's race is scheduled for a 12:00 p.m. ET gun followed by the women's race at 1:15 p.m. ET.
