Iowa assistant track and field coach Joey Woody will be inducted into the Missouri Valley Hall of Fame on March 6, 2012, according to a release.

Woody will be enshrined for his efforts at Northern Iowa, where his accomplishments included a 400-meter hurdles title at the 1997 NCAA outdoor championships. The Iowa City native and City High alum garnered four All-American honors while at UNI.

After his college career, Woody competed on the national stage at the World Cup of Track and World Track Championships for the United States. He earned gold medals at both events as a member of the 4x400 relay team.

The Hawkeye assistant has been on staff since 2007 and has twice been named the Midwest Region Coach of the Year by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. He most recently received the honor in March and helped the Hawkeyes break eight school records and win the Big Ten outdoor championship this past spring.

Tickets to the Hall of Fame event — which will be held at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis — may be purchased by calling the Missouri Valley office at (314) 444-4300.
