A look around the nest: Track wins first OVC indoor title


Tennessee Tech women’s track and field team made history in February, winning their first OVC Indoor Championship in 2018.

Head coach Wayne Angel received the OVC Indoor Coach of the Year award for the second consecutive year, winning both indoor and outdoor seasons for the Golden Eagles.

"They came together today and gave some extraordinary efforts as a team," Angel said. "Na'Asha (Robinson) and Micayla (Rennick) were spectacular today. They had a heavy workload and met the challenge. … Everyone did their part, from top to bottom, to earn the title of OVC champion."

Senior Micayla Rennick earned Athlete of the Championship after winning both 800 and 3,000 meter competitions, along with the mile. Entering the competition, Rennick already claimed OVC Female Indoor Track Athlete of the Year honors.

Tech looks to continue their success nationally in the coming weeks.
