FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - The Northern Arizona Coaches Caravan is coming to a town near you this May. The Lumberjacks will make appearances in South Phoenix, San Diego, Orange County, and North Phoenix to spread the Lumberjack spirit through the state of Arizona and California.

The Lumberjack Athletic teams brought home a Men's Cross Country NCAA National Championship, in addition to seven conference championships for the third straight year.
