COACH OF THE YEAR

Ted Hutch, York: The Wildcats got better-than-seeded performances from numerous athletes to win the Class B state championship for the fifth time in eight years. Seniors Jon Burke (55 hurdles), Jon Rodrigues (triple jump) and Nick Rainforth (400) won events in which they weren’t the No. 1 seed. Rainforth and Trevor Lavigne were seeded second and eighth in the 400 but finished 1-2, and Ben Hay placed second in the high jump despite entering as the No. 15 seed.
