KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- A coach at Truman State University has been inducted into the Missouri Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
John Cochrane received the honor earlier this month during an event in Columbia. He is the head track and field and cross country coach at the Kirksville school.
During his tenure, Cochrane's track and field teams have produced 64 All-American honors and five national champions. His teams have won six Mid America Intercollegiate Athletics Association conference team titles. Cochrane was honored by the NCAA Division II coaches with the Distinguished Service Award in Cross Country in 1992 and in Track and Field in 1996.
His teams also have been among the tops in the nation in grade-point average.
