    USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force baseball assistant coach Chandler Rose was named the Northwoods League coach of the year. Rose was an assistant coach for the Alexandria (Minn.) Beetles this summer in the NWL.

    Rose worked with the hitters and coached third base for the Beetles, helping lead the team to a fourth-place finish in the North Division. Rose earned the selection as his Alexandria team led the Northwoods league in batting average, hits, and stolen bases as well as finishing second in the league in runs, home runs and walks.

    "It was an honor to receive the award from the Northwoods League," Rose said. "I'd like to thank the Alexandria Beetles organization and players for giving me the opportunity to earn this award. It was also an honor to be able to represent the Air Force Academy this summer. I look forward to this upcoming season at the Academy and continuing to develop our young players with the same aggressive philosophies that led us to success in Alexandria."

    The Northwoods League is one of the premier summer collegiate baseball leagues consisting of 14 teams located in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Canada.
