MEN’S INDOOR TRACK

Jacob Krolick named South Central Region Assistant Coach of the Year by USTFCCCA — LINK

NEW ORLEANS – Texas A&M University-Commerce assistant track and field coach Jacob Krolick has been named the South Central Region Assistant Coach of the Year by the U.S Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), as announced Tuesday.

Krolick, in his second year with the program, helped guide the A&M-Commerce men to their third straight Lone Star Conference Indoor Track and Field Championship. Krolick worked directly with Luis Romero, who qualified for three events at nationals and was named Lone Star Conference Indoor Track Athlete of the Year for the third time in his career. Krolick also supervises 5000-meter qualifier Elliot Martynkiewicz and the national qualifier distance medley relay.

“This is a great honor for Jake,” said A&M-Commerce Head Track & Field Coach George Pincock. “He is very deserving of this award, as he has devoted himself wholly to helping this team improve.”

“I tell all of my student-athletes that consistent, hard work pays off,” Krolick remarked. “This award is a reflection of the work my group has consistently put in for the last two years. This effort is also reflective of the great support and trust I’ve received from Coach Pincock this season. We are looking forward to a great finish to the indoor season this weekend in Birmingham!”

A&M-Commerce has qualified 15 total student-athletes for this weekend’s NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field National Championship in Birmingham, Ala., including the aforementioned distance runners under coach Krolick’s tutelage. Coverage throughout the weekend will be available on NCAA.com and LionAthletics.com.
