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 7 2017-2018 boys team coach of the week is Randy Quarez of the Stansbury High boys cross country team. Quarez led the Stallions to their first-ever boys state cross country championship, as a group of five seniors set the pace.
Stansbury’s veteran runners finished third a year ago before stepping up to win it all in 2017 without a single runner in the Top 10 individually. Sophomore Josh Oblad was the team’s top finisher, capturing 12th overall (10th among the team representatives), and the Stallions got points from five runners crossing between No. 10 and No. 21 among the full-team competitors.
Stansbury’s success, by nine points over Pine View, earns Coach Quarez our honor for the week of Oct. 16, 2017, the Week 7 selection for our boys team Anython Coach of the Week.
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.
