Dage Minors is ending his time at Franklin Pierce University in spectacular fashion after being named this week as the outdoor season’s East Region Track Athlete of the Year by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
It is the first East Region Athlete of the Year award for Minors, a middle distance runner. The senior was also the USTFCCCA’s selection for the award each of the last two indoor seasons. Across the nation’s eight regions, Minors was one of four male athletes to pick up both indoor and outdoor track Athlete of the Year awards in 2016-17.
