BHS’s Taylor named US Track & Field Coach of the Year

NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) has announced the state-by-state winners of its ninth annual High School Track & Field Coaches of the Year. Presented by the United States Marine Corps on July 11, Blythewood High School’s Head Coach Alisha Taylor was named South Carolina’s Girls’ Coach of the Year. 

State-by-state winners were selected based on their teams’ performances throughout the 2023 outdoor track & field season. Among the factors taken into consideration were team score and placement at the state championships, margin of victory, performance against rankings if available, individual championships, and how their teams’ performances stacked up to previous years (e.g. first title in school history, consecutive titles, etc.).

Each honoree will receive a trophy from the USTFCCCA recognizing their achievements.

The winners from each state are in consideration for the association’s National High School Track & Field Coach of the Year award. One boys coach and one girls coach from among all the states will be selected by a panel of experts and be announced next month as the national winners.
