Congratulations to Upper School teacher and girls' varsity soccer coach Ben Bollinger Danielson, who was nominated for the 2017-18 Star Tribune Minnesota Coach of the Year award!
Coach of the Year nominees are selected based on how their leadership contributed to an exceptional achievement in athletics and how the individual shaped their team's sportsmanship on and off the field. Two coaches will be awarded for the 2017-18 school year: one head coach from a boys' varsity sport and one head coach from a girls' varsity sport will be selected by a panel of Star Tribune sports writers. Award winners will be honored at the Star Tribune All-Metro Sports Awards Show, and each winner's athletic program will receive a $5000 donation from Luther Auto.
"I am honored to have been nominated," comments Bollinger Danielson. "I am thankful for the opportunity to have been able to work with the soccer players at SPA over the past 15 years. They are always a joyful, hardworking, and inspiring group of student-athletes."
Way to go, Coach B-Dan!
