Coaches of the Year

JEFF MELLINGER AND TOMMY ORTEGA, Northgate -- Under the guidance of the first-year co-coaches, the Broncos won the program's first NCS title since 1996 and ended Campolindo's nine-year reign. Northgate won with just six swimmers competing at the NCS meet. Strong relays and steady individual performances -- which included several lifetime bests -- propelled the Broncos past a star-studded Granada team.
