Newman named 2014 Inspiring Coaches Finalist
Shorewood High School boys cross-country and track and field coach Dominic Newman has been named one of the Brooks 2014 Inspiring Coaches finalists. Newman was nominated by a number of parents, athletes and fellow coaches earlier this year for his hard work, encouragement and dedication to the SHS track and cross country programs.

According to Brooks, while it’s common for coaches to be nominated by parents and athletes, it is unusual for fellow coaches to submit nominations.
As a finalist, Newman will receive $5,000 in Brooks running shoes, apparel and accessories for his teams, $500 cash for team expenses, and membership in the Brooks Inspire Daily program for 2014. Newman has also been invited to attend the Brooks Inspiring Coaches awards ceremony in Seattle on August 5. (Brooks will pay for all of his travel, lodging and food expenses.)
Brooks will choose one Inspiring Coach of the Year from its nominees later this fall. Should Newman be named the Inspiring Coach of the Year, he will receive an additional $5,000 in Brooks running shoes, apparel and accessories for his teams, $2,000 cash for team expenses, and a trip for two to the 2015 Brooks PR Invitational.
“It’s a great honor to be selected to the top 25 from the more than 1,500 nominations Brooks received,” Newman said. “I am honored that my athletes, parents and fellow coaches took the time to nominate me, and felt that I inspired both my teams and the running community as a whole.”
