CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Associate head coach Kebba Tolbert was named USTFCCCA Women's Assistant Coach of the Year for the Northeast Region, the organization announced today. Tolbert earned this honor for the second year in a row and a third time in the last four seasons.
Tolbert guides women's sprints, hurdles, and horizontal jumps at Harvard. His athletes were responsible for 78 of Harvard's 105 points at the Ivy League Indoor Heptagonal Championships, including Heps titles in the 60m (Gabby Thomas), 200m (Gabby Thomas), triple jump (Simi Fajemisin), and 4x400m relay.
Under Tolbert's guidance, Thomas set a new Ivy League, meet, and school record in the 60-meter dash (7.25) at Indoor Heps, and Fajemisin recorded a new program mark in the triple jump (43'.25"), also at Indoor Heps.
