Greene Honord For Efforts
        FAYETTEVILLE - University of Arkansas associate head track coach Rolando Greene was honored for his hard work when he was awarded the United States Track Coaches Association's assistant track coach of the year award at the 2004 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships last weekend.
        Greene, an Arkansas assistant since 1996, has completely rewritten the Lady Razorback record books since his arrival in Fayetteville and 2004 was a banner year as his athletes won the university's first two NCAA individual championships in the sprints. Junior Veronica Campbell was the first to accomplish the task during the indoor season and fellow junior LaShaunte'a Moore completed a 200-meter sweep outdoors.
        "I am very honored to be recognized by my peers as one of the top assistants," Greene said. "The fact is that I could not have done it without the young ladies that have come to Arkansas. I have been blessed to have wonderful student-athletes here beginning with Elisha Brewer and Kyla Shoemake to Veronica Campbell and LaShaunte'a Moore. I just have to thank God for everything He has done."
        While Greene has been one of the top assistants for years, it was his efforts in 2004 that pushed the his name to the top of the candidate pool for the sprints and hurdles coach of the year. Arkansas' sprint corp won two NCAA individual championships, earned 12 all-America honors, won three Southeastern Conference championship and set a collegiate record. While Campbell and Moore stole most of the headlines with their numerous championship efforts it was a team effort that picked up the numerous accolades. Other sprinters and hurdlers that played a major factor in Arkansas' success included Kasia Williams, Shaneatra Neely, Kerri-Ann Mitchell, Beyonka McDowell and Aneita Denton.
        For Greene, the award is the first of his coaching career which began in Springfield, Mo., as a member of the Southwest Missouri State Bears before moving to the University of Minnesota and eventually to Fayetteville.
