Kondos Field, Lane Earn National Coaching Honors

April 15, 2000

Boise, ID - After winning the 2000 NCAA title Friday night, UCLA continued to earn more honors Saturday afternoon. UCLA head coach Valorie Kondos Field was voted by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches (NACGC) the national Co-Coach of the Year, along with Iowa State's Amy Pyle, who took her team to the NCAA Championships for the first time in school history.

Kondos Field previously earned Coach of the Year honors in 1996 and 1997.

"It's always a tremendous honor to be honored by your peers and in accepting this award for the entire coaching staff of my assistants Randy Lane and Steve Gerlach and undergraduate assistant Kaitie Dyson," said Kondos Field. "It has been an easy year for us as coaches because of the work ethic and integrity of the student-athletes on the team. Because they were so coachable, it encouraged us to coach them more. I have coached more this year inside and outside the gym than I had during my 18-year tenure at UCLA."

Lane earned national Assistant Coach of the Year honors for the first time in his career. Upon his acceptance, he recognized the contribution of Gerlach, a former U.S. National Team coach. "This is as much Steve's as it is mine," Lane said. "I have learned so much from him."
