Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School is proud to announce that Coach Ed Wright has been named the 2017 State of Alabama Girls’ High School Track & Field Coach of the Year by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
According to the USTFCCCA, “the honor is based upon the performance of Montgomery Catholic’s Girls’ Track and Field team throughout the 2017 season and is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the student athletes, the coaching staff and the administration of the school”.
Montgomery Catholic’s Athletic Director Daniel Veres said of Wright, “After 11 years leading the Montgomery Catholic Racing Knights, and with a new Girls State title, 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 said, “We had a great year, but it would not have been possible without the dedication of our assistant coaches; Kevin Madden, Coy Hunter and Hollis Johnson and of course the determination of our athletes. They all make my job easy. This is an award for our entire team!”
Congratulations Coach Ed Wright, State of Alabama Girls’ High School Track & Field Coach of the Year!
