Previously named IIAC Track and Field Coach of the Year in 1989 and IIAC Cross Country Coach of the Year in 1999, Keith Schmidt, has contributed a great amount of success to BVU’s program. As the former head coach for BVU’s Cross Country and Track & Field team from 1986-2001, Schmidt guided 44 All-Americans and 4 NCAA National Champions. Throughout this past decade, he had been taking over the Director of Facilities role at BV.
