METRO ROUNDUP: Rose-Hulman's Evans honored as Great Lakes' top athlete

TERRE HAUTE — Rose-Hulman senior Liz Evans earned her fifth career NCAA Division III Great Lakes Region Field Athlete of the Year honor, according to results released Wednesday by the U.S. Cross Country and Track and Field Coaches Association.

In addition, Rose assistant coach Matthew Cole captured his fourth career Great Lakes Region Assistant Coach of the Year Award for his efforts with the women’s team this spring.

Evans has previously earned NCAA Division III Great Lakes Region Field Athlete of the Year honors during the 2010 Indoor and Outdoor seasons, the 2011 outdoor season, and the 2013 indoor season.

Evans has secured the top seed in the women’s high jump for the NCAA Division III indoor national championships that take place at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at North Central College. She cleared a new NCAA Division III all-time national record of 6 feet at the University of Louisville earlier this month.

The seven-time All-American swept the 2012 NCAA Division III indoor and uutdoor national championships for her third and fourth career high jump national titles. She also has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Year six times in her career.

The mathematics and electrical engineering double major was named HCAC Field Athlete of the Year this spring and was a three-time USTFCCCA Division III National Field Athlete of the Week.
