PrepsUtah.com has joined forces with Anython to announce this year’s coach of the week honorees. Each week during this school year, we select a boys team and a girls team coach who represents the best the state has to offer in coaching excellence.
Anython, a unique company helping teams and groups raise money to run their programs, is the sponsor of this award. The company will present to each weekly winner a certificate and a coach of the week water bottle and will provide the teams at the winners’ schools a special offer to utilize the fundraising services it provides.
Our Week 4 2017 girls team coach of the week is David Holt of the Pine View High girls cross country team. After winning a state championship in 2016, Holt returned most of his top runners in 2017 and led his team to a repeat title. That championship makes him our honoree for the week of Sept. 25, 2017.
Holt’s Panthers were led by sophomore Jessica Hill, who finished fifth individually, while junior Alli Baker was 12th and senior Caroline Clements took 15th. Holt is in good position with returning runners to make another run at a championship a year from now, and his team’s accomplishments this year make him the Week 4 selection for our girls team Anython Coach of the Week honor.
Nominate a deserving coach for one of our weekly honors by sending an email with the name, school and sport of the coach and the reason we should honor him or her to firstname.lastname@example.org.
