SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The Trinity men’s and women’s cross country teams will have a new head coach for the first time in 12 years, as Director of Athletics Bob King has announced that Derick Lawrence will take over the program this fall.
Coach Lawrence has been Trinity’s assistant cross country and track & field coach the past two seasons, after serving three years as an assistant coach in Indiana.
After graduating from DePauw in 2007, Lawrence was a volunteer assistant at Indiana State University. He returned to his alma mater after that season, serving two years as a graduate assistant with the DePauw Tigers. Lawrence earned All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference honors with DePauw in 2006
Coach Lawrence has helped lead the team to a second-place finish at the SCAC Championships in women’s cross country last season, and had two runners (Maddie Murphy and Rosemary Steup) earn spots at the NCAA Championships the past two years.
Coach Lawrence holds a Level 1 Coaching Education Certification from USA Track & Field.
In addition to being the head cross country coach during the fall, Coach Lawrence will also serve as an assistant coach with the track & field teams in the spring.
