Duke women’s cross country coach Kevin Jermyn was named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association’s Southeast Region Coach of the Year on Tuesday.
Jermyn, in his ninth season as the Blue Devils’ coach, garnered the honor for the fourth time. He previously received region coach of the year accolades in 2004, 2005 and 2009.
Last weekend, Jermyn directed the Duke women to the program’s fourth Southeast Region title with a 42-point margin over second-place William & Mary. Four Blue Devils runners finished inside among the top 25 overall to earn spots on the all-region team, including senior Juliet Bottorff (runner-up), sophomore Kelsey Lakowske (ninth), sophomore Carolyn Baskir (12th) and graduate student Suejin Ahn (19th).
Duke will be one of 31 teams to compete for the NCAA title Saturday in Louisville, Ky. Florida State and Boston College also will be representing the ACC in the meet.
• The Duke women’s cross country team maintained its position as the 10th-ranked program in the U.S. Track and Field & Cross Country Coaches Association’s final regular-season national poll.
