Coach of the Year

Mark Cyr, Mt. Blue: The Cougars won their second straight Class A Alpine title (and ninth overall title in Cyr’s 11 years as head of the Alpine program) by buying in to the team concept Cyr preaches. “I take my hat off to the seven boys who raced,” he said. “It wasn’t about self-glorification and getting up on the podium, it was to make sure the team did well. Even though you’re out on the course yourself, it’s still a team event.”
