NEW ORLEANS – Jason Saretsky, the William W. "Bill" McCurdy Director of Track and Field/Cross Country, was named the Northeast Region Women's Coach of the Year, the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced Monday.

The Harvard women, led by Saretsky in his eighth season, won the Ivy League Heptagonal outdoor title for the first time since 1990 and second time overall. The Crimson, which scored the ninth-most points in conference history at the event, also won the indoor Heps title, the second time in program history that Harvard has taken both crowns.

The Crimson had 13 All-Ivy selections, including four athletes and one relay squad on the first team. Harvard is sending a program-record four women to the NCAA finals from the school-record 16 sent to the NCAA preliminaries. Harvard women set nine school records in NCAA events during the 2014 season.

The selected Crimson student-athletes head to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore., Wednesday.
