USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force women's gymnastics head coach Doug Day was named the North Central Region Head Coach of the Year, the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches (Women) announced this morning (April 7).
Day, who also claimed the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation coach of the year award, is in his eighth season with the Falcons' program. Air Force achieved a rare feat this season, improving its overall total in every regular-season meet. After opening the season with a 190.625, the Falcons elevated their total in all 11 meets until it topped out at 195.300 in the finale against No. 20 Arizona - the highest total since 2004 and the 15th-highest total in conference history. Air Force achieved six of its top-seven Day-era scores during the 2014 season, while accumulating the highest beam total (49.125) in the last decade and the third-best mark in MPSF history.
It is the second North Central Region award for Day, who also captured the honor in 2008.
