Don Augustine is in his 16th year as the head men’s and women's cross country and track coach at St. Norbert College in 2018-19.
St. Norbert's women's cross country and indoor and outdoor track and field teams completed a rare triple crown in 2016-17, with all three squads winning Midwest Conference championships. The Green Knights then became the first program in Midwest Conference history to repeat the trifecta when they accomplished the same in 2017-18.
Augustine led the Green Knights to a banner season in 2015, with the men's and women's squads both capturing the Midwest Conference outdoor championships. It was the men's first conference championship in school history, while the women - who also won the MWC indoor title - won their first league championships since 1991. St. Norbert repeated as women's MWC indoor and outdoor champions in 2016.
Augustine mentored Emily Schudrowitz to an indoor 800-meter national title in 2010 and an outdoor 800-meter national crown in 2012, as well as Ashley Graybill during her indoor and outdoor 800-meter NCAA Division III championships in 2009. Jenny Scherer placed seventh at the 2008 NCAA Division III Cross Country Championship under his tutelage.
In 2012, the St. Norbert men’s and women’s outdoor track and field teams both placed second at the Midwest Conference meet, their best combined finish in school history to that point.
Augustine's first men’s and women’s cross country teams at St. Norbert both placed second at the Midwest Conference Championships in October 2007. The women's cross country team captured the MWC championship in 2010.
Augustine arrived in De Pere during the summer of 2007 after being the head men’s and women’s track and field coach for four years at Westminster College, an NCAA Division III school located in New Wilmington, Pa.
During Augustine’s tenure at Westminster, the Titans qualified their first two athletes to the NCAA Division III national track and field meet.
A 2001 Westminster graduate, Augustine was a standout middle-distance runner on the track as well as a two-year starter at linebacker on the football team. Augustine earned his master’s degree from Temple University and was a graduate assistant in football for the Owls during the 2002-03 year.
Elizabeth Krug is in her second year as the St. Norbert College full-time assistant coach for men’s and women’s cross country and track and field in 2018-19.
Krug spent the last two years as a graduate assistant at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y., where she worked with sprints, hurdles, javelin and combined events. Krug coached 11 Liberty League individual champions, covering the women’s 60-, 100- and 200-meter dashes and the men’s 200-, 400- and 400-meter hurdles. St. Lawrence also had one All-American in the 400-meter hurdles.
An accomplished athlete at Hendrix (Ark.) College, Krug won the NCAA Division III national championship in the heptathlon in 2013. Her mark of 5,074 points stands as the eighth-best mark in Division III history. Krug was a four-time All-American in the heptathlon and was also an All-American in the pentathlon as a junior.
