“Malinda and Jeff have been vital to the success of our Track and Field program at both the High School and Middle School levels. With multiple competitors in the horizontal and vertical jumps, their athletes were instrumental in the Class 2A Boys Runner-up finish this season. They both bring experience as athletes and coaches,” said Boldt. “What I appreciate most is the manner in which they communicate with our athletes as well as develop a trust relationship that facilitates such a positive atmosphere for our young people. I am excited that they are being recognized for their contributions to this sport. They are invaluable to our success and very deserving of this recognition.”
