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 20 2017-2018 girls team coach of the week is Kelli Briggs of the Bountiful High drill team. Briggs took on the challenge of leading the Mandonelles as the successor to the immensely successful Jan Whittaker, who led Bountiful to 18 state titles, including eight of nine heading into her departure for the UHSAA offices after the 2017 title.
After leading the Mandonelles to the Region 5 championship, Briggs got her tenure off to a strong start as her team won the 5A state championship. That fast start makes her our Anython girls team Coach of the Week for the week of Feb,5, 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.
