South Burlington Field Hockey Coach Anjie Soucy has earned another accolade to add to her impressive resume.
Soucy, who coached the Wolves to a 14-2-1 record and a berth in the Division I championship game this fall, has been named the National Federation of State High School Associations Vermont Coach of the Year in field hockey.
“Anjie is among Vermont most decorated high school coaches,” said Michael Jabour, South Burlington’s Director of Student Activities. “In field hockey, she has led the Wolves to nine Division I titles, 14 final fours and 221-43-15 record in 17 years as a head coach.”
Soucy will now go up against field hockey coaches from the 49 other states in order to determine the national field hockey coach of the year.
South Burlington and Soucy will find out the result of the national award in mid-January.
In addition to what the award says about Soucy and her quality coaching, Jabour is also happy about what the award says about South Burlington and its athletic programs.
“We have quality coaches that care about our community and students,” Jabour said. “SBHS coaches strive to win but an emphasis will always be placed on effort, improvements, respect for all and learning to win graciously and to lose with dignity.
“This award represents all the above.”
