LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Three years on the job, Doug Reynolds has already cemented himself as an Aggie legend.

The NM State track & field head coach was named Mountain Region Women's Coach of the Year Friday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. He is the first head coach in program history to earn the honor.

Award winners were determined by a vote of USTFCCCA member coaches. Each of the nine regions – Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Mountain, Northeast, South, South Central, Southeast and West – honored both genders’ top track athletes and field athletes, as well as the top men’s and women’s head coaches and assistant coaches.

Reynolds led his squad to new heights in 2020, winning the program's first team title at the Western Athletic Conference Indoor Championships. The Aggies captured titles in nine of 17 events, including the 60m, 200m, 400m, 3000m, 60m hurdles, 4×400m relay, distance medley relay, high jump and triple jump, and finished with 206 total points - 49 ahead of second-place and six-time reigning champion GCU.

Reynolds, who was also named the WAC Indoor Track & Field Coach of the Year, and the Aggies concluded the indoor season ranked sixth in the Mountain Region.
