Coach of the year

Megan Coddington, Concord

For the third time in Coddington's four years at Concord, the Minutemen ended the season by hoisting a North Coast Section Division II championship trophy. The season started off slowly for Concord, which returned just four starters from last year's championship team and featured a pitcher with little varsity experience. But with Coddington preaching defense, the squad was rolling by April and won 18 of its final 19 games. Team chemistry also made an impact, she said. All three of Concord's section titles under Coddington have come with a different pitcher in the circle and the Minutemen haven't been seeded higher than No. 3 for any of their championships runs.
