EASTON, Mass. (March 25, 2016) – Stonehill College head women's track & field coach Karen Boen has been named the Northeast-10 Conference Coach of the Year for the indoor season, the league office announced today.
This honor comes two week after Boen earned U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) East Region Women's Coach of the Year honors for the sixth time in her career. This is also her sixth career Northeast-10 Conference Coach of the Year award for track & field, including her fourth with the women's team.
Boen led the Stonehill women to their third consecutive NE-10 indoor title on February 20th, as the Skyhawks posted six event wins and 11 All-Conference performances to edge Southern Connecticut State University with 157.50 total points. The following weekend, Boen guided Stonehill to a program record seventh-place finish at the New England Championships.
