Michelle Latimer Attends NCAA Women's Coaches Academy

BOWIE, Md. – Bowie State University head cross country / track and field coach Michelle Latimer attended the highly selective NCAA Women's Coaches Academy, held June 24-28 in Atlanta, Ga.

The NCAA Women's Coaches Academy is designed for women coaches who want to strengthen and improve their professional and team success. It provides skills training for coaches at all levels, to assist them in being more efficient in their usefulness of resources, their productivity in the quality of play they coach and ultimately more successful in their respective sport(s).

Latimer was appointed head coach of the women and men’s Cross Country / Track and Field teams in 2006, and under her leadership the program has flourished. Prior to joining the BSU family in 2004, Latimer served as Head Track & Field Coach of Division III Trinity College (Washington, D.C.) for two seasons.  Under Latimer’s direction, Trinity placed third overall in the conference in its inaugural 2002 season. Coach Latimer's focus is on the student-athlete, with an emphasis on the student. Academics are the number one priority.

Personal accolades for Latimore include USTFCCCA (Southeast Region) Indoor Coach of the Year (2007-2998), CIAA Indoor Track and Field Coach of the Year (2008-2009) and CIAA Cross Country Coach of the Year (2009).

In 2009 Bowie State’s women and men’s Cross Country teams captured the conference Cross Country title, placed second (women and men) in the CIAA Indoor Championships three straight seasons (2008-2010) and finished as the conference Runner-Up at the CIAA Outdoor Championships (2009) on both the women and men’s side. Coach Latimer and her staff have produced 27 NCAA All-Americans and three NCAA Athletes of Year.
