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 19 2017-2018 boys team coach of the week is Barry Smith of the North Sevier High wrestling team. Smith’s Wolves are headed to the 2A state championships after winning the Divisional A qualifying meet on their home mat.
North Sevier is sending 23 wrestlers to the state meet as it seeks its first state championship since 1987. Three of those grapplers won their divisions at the qualifier – Shawn Sorensen at 138 pounds, Mac Peterson at 182 and Tanner Sorenson at 220. The Wolves finished ahead of Altamont in the divisional and are headed to a showdown with Millard, which won the Divisional B competition.
With his team in place to chase a state title, Smith is our Anython boys team Coach of the Week for the week of Jan. 29, 2018.
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.
