Another outstanding season has yielded more honors for the Xavier Prep badminton team.
Sue Contreras, who led the Gators to the state championship and a 17-0 record in her first season as head coach, was named Coach of the Year by azcentral.com as the media outlet also released its All-Arizona teams on Tuesday (Dec. 6).
Congratulations, coach, well-deserved !!
Two Gators were named to the All-Arizona First Team – seniors Tatum Clarke and Annie Kamps, who earned the state individual doubles title and helped XCP clinch the state team title with a win over Gilbert Perry. It was the Gators’ fourth straight crown and 10th overall.
XCP doubles partners Emily Woodrow and Kiana Valentova-Macdonald also were honored as honorable-mention selections.
