Larry Buffington, cross country coach for Gayville-Volin High School, was awarded the 2013 Cross Country Coach of the Year award for Area 3/Class B by the SDCCTFCA (South Dakota Cross Country Track & Field Coaches Association).
With his girls team finishing second in the State B Meet back in October, and with the first two places in the individual race going to Raider runners, Buff was in great position for this prestigious award.
The coach’s association chose Jason Bohl, of Garretson, as the 2013 Circle of Champions Coach of the Year.
The Blue Dragon girls won Class A, with the boys finishing third, cementing the combined team title for Garretson.
