COACH OF THE YEAR

Andrew Coulombe, Kennebunk: In his sixth season as head coach, Coulombe guided the Rams to the Class A state championship, the first such title in school history. Kennebunk didn’t win a single event, but its depth proved the deciding factor in a four-school battle with South Portland, Cony and defending champ Bangor.  “This has been the hardest-working, most-dedicated group that I’ve had in six years,” said Coulombe, who teaches math at The Middle School of the Kennebunks. “I’m so proud of them.”
