Gustavus Adolphus College women’s track and field coach Tom Thorkelson has been selected as the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Coach of the Year. Thorkelson led the Gusties to a second-place finish at the MIAC Championships last weekend. Gustavus won seven individual events as it compiled 173 points, which is the highest point total in program history. The Gusties’ depth accounted for the strong finish at the conference meet as the team posted seven first place finishes, three second place finishes, five third place finishes, two fourth place finishes, and three fifth place finishes. Thorkelson is in his tenth season leading Gustavus.
