Dragons coach recognized
Oneonta State swimming coach Chris Schuler-Ghiorse was selected as a finalist for the National STUDENT-Athlete Day Giant Steps Award by the National Consortium for Academics and Sports.
Schuler-Ghiorse is one of four coaches picked from a national pool. O-State softball coach Liz Wagner nominated Schule-Ghiorse for the award.
“I feel so incredibly honored,” Schuler-Ghiorse said in a media release by the college. “I feel so proud that I would be considered for such a great award. I truly am privileged to be a part of the Oneonta community.”
Schuler-Ghiorse completed her 16th season as the head coach for the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams.
Schuler-Ghiorse is a two-time SUNY Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, including 2012 when she was selected for the honor on the men’s side after directing the Red Dragons to their best finish during her tenure.
In 2000, she was awarded the Women’s Coach of the Year. She has coached numerous conference champions, including Oneonta High graduate Alex Miller, who won three individual titles at this year’s championships.
