Gary Moore has been named the NJCAA Division III men's cross country coach of the year following Alfred State's 2nd place finish at the National Championships. Moore was chosen for the award by his fellow coaches.
Moore guided the men's cross country team to its best national finish since 2001. Three members of his team, John Sweeney (Barker), Brandon Lewis (Red Creek), and Joe Seitz (Williamsville North) ran to NJCAA All-American honors while two were named All-Region.
The Pioneers were ranked #3 in the country most of the season but were able to run past previously ranked #2 Mohawk Valley CC to move up one spot. The blue & gold once again were able to run past MVCC to earn the national runner-up honors.
ASC has now finished 2nd overall five times in Coach Moore's career (2009, 2002, 1998, 1996, and 1984).
Earlier in the season, Moore was named the Region III men's cross country coach of the year.
