NEW ORLEANS — After Texas State’s strong indoor track and field season, head coach Dana Boone and senior triple and long jumper Allie Saunders were honored by the Sun Belt Conference along with a number of other Bobcats.

Boone — who guided her team to the Sun Belt Conference’s indoor track and field championship in 2015 — was named the women’s coach of the year. It is her fourth such award at Texas State after being honored three times in 2013 by the Western Athletic Conference following the team’s three league titles.
