Broadnax, who teaches health and P.E., is in her eighth year as Station’s head track and field coach. This is her second statewide award in the past three years, during which time her boys and girls teams won state titles and produced several champions in individual events.
The coaches association takes several factors into consideration during the award selection process, including team score and placement at the state meet, the number of different events in which student-athletes qualified, individual championships, and how their team’s performances measured up to previous seasons.
“It is a very humbling experience,” Broadnax said. “I would never have won these awards without the hard work and dedication of my athletes. To watch them mature into such amazing young men and women and be so successful, to watch each of them graduate and move on to college or work and find their happiness, is really the best reward I could ever ask for.”
Broadnax also credited assistant coaches Rob Lyon, Colin Broderick and Donnie Catlett for their efforts.
