College notes: St. Vincent's Harbert to retire at end of season
The St. Vincent athletic department announced the retirement of women's cross country coach Tom Harbert, effective at the conclusion of the 2015-16 sports season.
Harbert has spent 52 seasons coaching several sports.
After starting his career as the coach of the wrestling team, Harbert transitioned into men's cross country after changes in the department altered the lineup of sports the school offered.
Harbert took the men's club lacrosse team to the varsity level, taking over as head coach in 1990 while continuing to coach the men's and women's cross country teams.
In 1999, Harbert became coach of the school's first women's varsity lacrosse team, leading that team through the transition from NAIA to the NCAA in the mid-2000s.
