The Montgomery Catholic girls indoor track team took home the state championship trophy, and the award did not go unnoticed. The Lady Knights team and their coaches, Ed Wright and Hollis Johnson, were invited to City Hall to be publicly recognized by Mayor Todd Strange before the city council meeting on the evening of Tuesday, February 19, 2019. One by one, the champions were called to the floor, congratulated on their individual performances, and given a certificate of recognition from the mayor.
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, and also coaches the indoor and outdoor boys and girls track teams. The outdoor track season is fast approaching, and the Knights are hoping to take home another state title this season.
