Stanford adds assistant to track, cross-country programs

 

Elizabeth Maloy, a four-time All-American at Georgetown, has joined the Stanford cross country and track and field staff.

Maloy, 28, will assist head coach Chris Miltenberg in coaching women's distance runners. She replaces Mary Jo Pruitt, who accepted a position as athletic director at Castilleja School.


Maloy competed for Miltenberg during her final year at Georgetown, in 2007-08, and continued to train under him for four years as a professional while also serving as a volunteer assistant coach for the Hoyas.

A three-year cross country and track and field team captain, Maloy was a two-time USTFCCCA All-Academic selection and earned Big East Conference Scholar-Athlete honors.

Maloy improved by more than a minute in the 5,000 meters under Miltenberg and placed seventh at the 2012 Olympic trials. She placed among the top 10 at five U.S. championship meets and ran a personal best of 15:15.27.

Wilson steered Stanford to the semifinals of the NCAA Championships after claiming the individual title, becoming the third Cardinal golfer ever to do so.

Wilson, a PING All-America first team selection, earned All-Pac-12 first team honors after placing third at the league tournament.
