GULF SHORES, Alabama (21 Alive) - Indiana Tech's men's and women's track teams each won their second straight NAIA outdoor track and field national title on Saturday.

The men were led by Dontaey Paige's win in the 100 meters, Deshawn Marshall's victory in the 400 meters, Robert Rose taking the 400 meter hurdles, and the win by the 4x800 relay team.

The women's win was paced by Zalika Dixon's repeat win in the 400 meter hurdles, and by victories by the 4x100 and 4x400 relays, the latter of which gave Tech its one point team win over Oklahoma Baptist.

Tech coach Doug Edgar was named both men's and women's NAIA coach of the year, in each case for the second straight year.
