Two Blue Blazer coaches were honored last night at the NIC Awards Dinner. Michelle Guipe was named NIC Coach of the Year for girls swimming and Will Coatie won the same award for girls basketball. Each coach was chosen by their peers in a vote among NIC coaches.
Coach Guipe led the girls swimming and diving team to an 11-4 record this season, while going 7-2 in NIC meets. The season was also highlighted by a 4th place finish at the NIC meet and 3rd place at Sectionals.
The girls basketball team had their best season in at least 20 years under Coach Coatie. The Lady Blazers finished the season with a record of 12-11. Their 9-3 record was good for 3rd place in the NIC. With many underclassmen playing key roles in the team’s success, the future is bright for the Lady Blazers.
Congrats to Coach Guipe, Coach Coatie, and their teams on an outstanding 2016-17 season!
