Coach Schultz recently completed his seventh season as the Duhawks' cross country coach. The men's team won the IIAC Championship this fall for which Schultz was named the Iowa Conference Coach of the Year.  The Duhawks went on to qualify for the National Championship where they finished 25thin the country.  During the season, the men won the Wartburg Invitational and were the top DIII finisher at the National Catholic Championships hosted by the University of Notre Dame.  The women's team finished third in the IIAC behind two top 25 teams and finished 9thin the Central Region, arguably the top region in the nation.  Individually, Genna Kinley qualified for the National Championship and went on to run 22:28, the second fastest time in program history. 


In track & field, the Loras women finished the 2012 indoor season second in the Iowa Conference, while the Duhawk men finished third.  Loras sent a number of athletes to the National Championships in 2011 and senior Laura Rieger earned All-American for the indoor 800 with a new school record time of 2:12.52.  Schultz has received a wide array of accomplishments during his time at Loras, including the IIAC and NCAA Central Region Coach of the Year for 2007 in men's indoor track and field. He led the men to the IIAC indoor championship in 2007 and the IIAC outdoor championship in 2005, including two top ten NCAA Indoor & Outdoor finishes at the Men's Championships.
