March 10, 2008
NEW ORLEANS - Georgia Tech men's track & field assistant coach Nat Page was selected the South Region Indoor Men's Assistant Coach of the Year, as selected by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
In each of the country's nine regions, the USTFCCCA selects the top men's and women's track athlete, field athlete, head coach and assistant coach for the 2008 NCAA Division I indoor season.
"I am very happy to receive this award," Page said. "This award does not come without the performances and efforts of our athletes. They are doing really well, listening and performing with consistency. Thanks to Coach Hinsdale, who lets me recruit these great athletes we have at Georgia Tech."
Page's expertise in the jumps and hurdles continued to pay dividends as Georgia Tech placed second to Florida State at the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships. Two of his hurdlers scored in the ACC meet, as did two of Page's triple jumpers, including NCAA qualifier James Lemons. Page is in his 12th season at Georgia Tech.
Three of Page's athletes have provisionally qualified for the 2008 NCAA Men's Indoor Track & Field Championships to be held this weekend in Fayetteville, Ark.
