Koll Earns National Award


The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced on Thursday that Iowa State senior Lisa Koll has been named the 2010 National Female Track Athlete of the Year for Outdoor Track & Field in Division I as voted by the nation's coaches.

Koll completed her collegiate career in fine fashion last weekend at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore., scoring national titles in the 5000 and 10,000 meters by wide margins. Koll became only the fourth female in NCAA history to notch, the 5k-10k double, joining Amy Skieresz (Arizona, 1997-98), Stephanie Herbst (Wisconsin, 1986), and Betty Jo Springs (North Carolina State, 1983).
