LHU’s Coakley, Taylor earn T&F honors

NEW ORLEANS — Seniors Mitch Coakley and Matt Taylor of the Lock Haven University men’s outdoor track and field team have earned all-region honors as both earned a spot on the 2018 U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Atlantic Region Team.

The top-5 individuals in each event from each region earned All-Region distinction, in addition to each of the members of the regions’ top-3 relay teams. The regions used for this award – Atlantic, Central, East, Midwest, South, South Central, Southeast and West – match those used during the indoor track & field season.

Coakley earned All-Region honors in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and Taylor ran to All-Region status in the 10,000-meter run. Both narrowly missed NCAA provisional marks this season in their respective All-Region event.
