Gophers Earn Additional Accolades

Gopher women's coach Matt Bingle and quarter-miler Aaron Buzard earned regional awards from the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Bingle, who led the Gopher women to their first-ever Big Ten indoor title, was named Midwest Region Coach of the Year. Buzard, who won the Big Ten 400 meter, was named Midwest Region Track Athlete of the Year.

Bingle leads the program's largest contingent ever to the NCAA Indoor Championships this weekend -- six individuals and a relay team will make the trip. Buzard, who enters the NCAA meet as the #9 seed, is one of four Gopher men making the trip to Fayetteville, Arkansas for the meet.
