HANOVER, N.H. — The U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announed on Friday that Dartmouth head track and field and cross country coach, Barry Harwick, was named the Division I Cross Country President.
Harwick enters his 20th year as the college’s head coach of men’s track and field and cross-country. His teams have enjoyed tremendous success at Dartmouth. In cross country, Dartmouth won Heptagonal titles in 1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2006. The squad has also advanced to the NCAA championships in 1993, 1994, 1995, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2006. In 1994, the Big Green won the Heps with a record-low 23 points, as well as the New England and NCAA District 1 championships. In track, the Big Green won the New England outdoor championship in 1994 and 1995 and were runner-ups in 1999, 2001, 2005, 2006, and 2007.
Several athletes under his guidance have earned numerous All-American honors in cross-country and track. In the spring of 2007, one of Harwick’s athletes, Ben True ’08, became the first Dartmouth runner to break the 4:00 barrier in the mile.
