Montgomery Catholic Coach Wright Named Boys High School Cross Country Coach of the Year 1
Montgomery Catholic Cross Country Coach Ed Wright was selected as the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Boys’ High School Coach of the Year for the state of Alabama for the 2018 cross country season. Coach Wright serves as the head coach for the boys and girls cross country teams at Montgomery Catholic, both of which won the state championship in the 2018 season.
“I’m thankful for the honor of the award,” Wright said about this achievement, “but any and all the honor goes to the young men who worked so hard to make it possible.”
The cross country runners look up to Wright, who encourages them continually to do their best.
“Coach Wright is a huge inspiration to us,” said sophomore cross country runner Joseph Schmidt, who ran with the state championship team. “He’s a great motivator who is always challenging us to keep getting stronger and faster.”
Montgomery Catholic’s Athletic Director Daniel Veres said of Wright, “This honor is well deserved. Coach Ed Wright will continue to encourage his team to be stronger and faster, and Montgomery Catholic athletes can look forward to continuing success under his leadership.”
Coach Wright is busy coaching both girls and boys indoor track teams and is preparing for the upcoming spring outdoor track season. Wright had previously won Coach of the Year for the state of Alabama for girls outdoor track & field by the USTFCCCA  in 2017.

The USTFCCCA is a non-profit organization that advocates for cross country and track & field coaches and represents over 9,000 coaching members on the high school and college level.
