Coach of the Year

Mark Halvorson, De La Salle -- Despite losing five individual North Coast Section champions from last year's dominant team, Halvorson still guided the Spartans to the NCS Division I dual meet title and the section championship. This year's De La Salle team had 10 wrestlers finish in the top six at the NCS championships, including two first-place winners, and sent six wrestlers to the state meet -- more than any other East Bay school.
