FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - University of Arkansas assistant men’s track and field coach Travis Geopfert has been voted National Assistant Coach of the Year.

The selection was announced Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association and is the second-consecutive season Geopfert has been voted the award.

Geopfert coached long jumper Jarrion Lawson - who won the national title with a world-leading 27-6½ jump, Kevin Lazas - who finished third in the heptathlon - and Anthony May - who placed fifth in the triple jump.

Geopfert also coached Southeastern Conference Champions Anthony May in the high jump and Raymond Higgs in the long jump as the Razorbacks won their second-straight SEC indoor title.
