WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- Winston-Salem State University's Inez Turner has been named CIAA Women's Cross Country Coach of the Year, as announced by the CIAA Office. 

This is the second consecutive season that Turner has earned Coach of the Year honors in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association.

"When I got the news about getting the award for the second year in a row, I took a moment to say thank you God for giving me the knowledge and love to continue to move this program to the next level", said Inez Turner.

"I feel very blessed and will continue to stay humble, because I know there is more to come for Winston-Salem State University Cross Country and Track & Field", Turner added.

Turner coached the Lady Rams to their second straight CIAA title in October, as the team held off a talented Virginia State team that also put on an impressive performance at the meet. The Lady Rams totaled 31 points to narrowly edge out the Lady Trojans, who totaled 33 points at the meet.
