I was interested, because my coach has brought it up a few times, and I was almost certain that this does not exist. To be frank I have done much the work for my team in coaching respects, and there have been "frets" about commitment and work. I wanted to verify if this is true or not, because this is what they use to say they have helped the team extensively.

There has never been a coach of the year award before. As Andrew said, they do give out plaques for OUTSTANDING coaching all the way to Nationals, though I think it's for all of the teams that get trophies, not just the winners. Maybe they are instituting one this year, but I really don't see how Scio could tell how good a coach is except by the placing of their team, and they already do the other plaques, so there's no reason to add a best coach award.

Yeah. How would they decide, anyways?

I'm pretty sure there will be no "outstanding" coach award. For instance, which coach would be better:

A) The coach that wins first every year but is overly harsh on their students or
B) The coach that, despite not placing often, is liked by their students and teaches them well?

I know how that feels.

[other school] won this, this, this... (goes on for several paragraphs)
then...
"[my school] also competed at the competition."

bah...that happened to us all the time when I was at Wellwood. Blurb Headline: Eagle hill takes first at regional competition. Last line: Wellwood middle from the same district placed second.....exaggeration but still

I don't think I've ever heard of a coach being disliked by their students. And also, there already is an outstanding coaching award. Maybe not in Kansas, but in Texas and at Nationals. There simply isn't a "best coach" award, also outstanding coaching is just based on places, not on something deeper.

Also, I don't think LASA has made it into the Austin newspapers even once. The only press we have is in the Solon newspaper, from when we went to their regional.

We were in the "West Austin News" once, which is ironic because LASA is in East Austin.
