Coach of the Year

Coach of the Year

Marlene Luiz

School: Misson Oak

Season: The second-year coach led an incredible turnaround for the Hawks. After winning just four matches in 2012, Misison Oak went 14-3 in 2013, finishing in second place in the East Yosemite League. “They turned it around with hard work,” Luiz said. “I can’t tell you how many golf balls we hit in practice. They listened and they did well. It was a blast with these kids. I could tell them, ‘Can’t chip, can’t putt, can’t score.’ They went home at night, hearing me say that.”
