Missouri Southern women's track and field and cross country coach Patty Vavra has been honored by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association with the organization's Jimmy Carnes Distinguished Service Award.

The USTFCCCA's Jimmy Carnes Distinguished Service Award is presented to individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their service to the Association and to the sports of Cross Country and Track and Field.
