Dan Schwarz, the Spartans’ cross country head coach in 1999, 2000, 2011 and 2012, will continue this fall to lead the program. In addition to his four years of coaching at ECC, Schwarz has over 20 years of coaching in both Girls’ Cross Country and Track at the high school level. All but two of those years have been at Larkin High School in Elgin. He started the Girls’ Cross Country program at Larkin in 1983 and has coached a number of state qualifiers in both sports. All of those runners continued to run at the collegiate level from the NCAA Division I level to the NAIA. Coach Schwarz has had runners qualify in 2011 and 2012 for the NJCAA Division I National Championship meet. In the past four years, ECC has had nine National qualifying positions and one Coaches All American.
