In honor of Coach Piane's retirement, and after 40 winters in South Bend, we thought it would be lovely to send Joe and Mimi on some world adventures.
Joe Piane was the second-longest serving coach in our storied university's history. However, his body of work is not measured in longevity. Coach Piane was --
Named NCAA Division I Cross Country Coach of the Year ... Twice.
Coached 151 men or women student athletes who achieved All-American status.
Finished in the Top 10 in the NCAA men's Cross Country 11 times in the last 24 years.
Won 18 Big East Titles in men's or women's Track & Field.
He started young (26!); he improved constantly through his career; he coached students and kept that perspective; he finished strong. And he accomplished all of this in spite of South Bend's winters!
We are proud to say, "We were coached by Joe Piane." We will present this gift to Coach at the October 3rd dinner. If you are able to give, please consider this deadline.
