ZEIS, NEWELL SWEEP REGIONAL HONORS
Lexi Zeis and Dennis Newell from the University of Mary have earned top honors from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
Zeis, a senior from Bismarck, has been named the NCAA Division II Women's Cross County Regional Athlete of the Year for the third year in a row. Zeis won her third consecutive Central Region title last Saturday in Kearney, Neb.
For Newell, it's the second straight year he's been named the USTFCCCA's Central Region Coach of the Year. The Marauders are two-time defending Central Region champs.
The Marauders return to action on Nov. 18 at the D-II national championships in Evansville, Ind.
