The Coach: Ron Combs enters his 19th season as the head coach of Wilmington's men's and women's track and field teams. Combs has been named Coach of the Year, twice by the Heartland Athletic Conference, and once by the OAC. In 2002, he led the men's indoor team to a sixth-place finish at NCAA DIII Championships.

Who to Watch: Elliot Phillimore, who was part of Wilmington's 4-x-400-meter relay team that took third place at the Outdoor All-Ohio Meet last weekend, is scheduled to compete in the 200-meter dash and 400-meter dash.
