Mount St. Mary boys soccer coach Francois Boda was named the Southwest Sectional Coach of the Year, the school learned this week.
The award was given by the National Federation of State High School Associations. Boda was also in the running for the organization’s National Coach of the Year award for boys soccer, which was given to Shawn Brower of Tennessee.
The Southwest Sectional award includes the states of Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
“Coach Boda’s tireless energy, professionalism, mentoring and leadership of our young student-athletes has been recognized big-time and Rockets everywhere are so proud,” Mount St. Mary athletic director John Keilty said.
Last year, Boda coached the Rockets to the Class 4A state championship. He also serves as head coach of the girls team.
