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 29 2017-2018 girls team coach of the week is Wade Williams of the Carbon High softball team. The Dinos are on pace to be in the mix as they chase their first softball state championship. So far, Williams’ team is 5-1 in Region 14 play and 15-3 overall. That matches Carbon’s win total for all of last season.
The last four games have put the Dinos’ biggest strength on display as this is a team that really knows how to score. After a 17-11 win over second-place Juab came a 12-2 victory over North Sevier, a 16-1 win over American Leadership Academy and a 7-6 triumph against Grand.
Kaytlyn Crupps is 6-0 in the circle and has seven home runs and 10 doubles in the batter’s box, while Cali Fossat has blasted 10 long balls. The strong bats of Lyndsey Madrigal, Makenna Pendergrass and Dekota Kraushaar add to this explosive offense.
Carbon will need to overcome strong teams at Grantsville, North Sanpete and Juab to capture that elusive title, but Williams has them firing on all cylinders. That fast start makes him our Anython girls team Coach of the Week for the week of April 16, 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.
