Kane Named Track & Field Coach of Year
College of the Canyons head cross country coach, Lindie Kane, has been voted the Men's Track and Field Coach of the Year by the California Community College Cross Country and Track Coaches Association. Kane will be honored on Dec. 8 at the California Community College Cross Country and Track Coaches Association's annual meeting at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas.
"It is a great honor to be acknowledged and recognized by the California Community College Track and Field Coaches Association," said Kane. "This award is a reflection of the commitment, dedication, hard work and competitive performance of our 2007 men's track and field team. This is not only an honor for me, but it will be shared by the College of the Canyons track and field coaching staff, the men's team and COC athletics."
The 2007 track and field season was Kane's best season to date, which included a second-place finish at the Western State Conference meet, with the team winning six individual events along with a 1-2-3 finish in the 200-meter dash. The men's team also won both relays and the 4x100-meter relay, posting the sixth-best time in the nation. As a team, they finished fifth in Southern California, a school best, and 11th at the State Championships.
Kane has been at the helm of the Cougar track and field program for 11 years and also coaches the cross country team. She was named the 2007 WSC Track and Field Coach of the Year and recently the 2007 WSC Men's Cross Country Coach of the Year.
