FARGO — Former North Dakota State head men's track & field and cross country coach Don Larson will be inducted into the USTFCCCA Coaches Hall of Fame at a ceremony in December in Orlando, Fla.

Larson is one of seven coaches who will be honored. The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association recognizes coaches who have brought "great distinction" to themselves and their institution.

In 41 years as the head coach at NDSU, Larson directed his track & field and cross country teams to 59 team championships. He earned 60 Coach of the Year honors at the conference, regional and national levels, including sweeping the Division II indoor and outdoor National Coach of the Year awards in 2004.
