Sioux Center, Iowa — Dordt College Cross Country coach Nate Wolf has been named the Great Plains Athletic Conference Women’s Cross Country Coach of the Year.

This is the third time Wolf has been named coach of the year by the GPAC and comes after his team won its fifth GPAC title in six years.  The Defender women claimed the title by a 25 point margin in the race run at Dordt’s campus.  Wolf was named the coach of the year after voting by the other GPAC coaches.
