Our Head Coach of Coach this year goes to an individual who has quickly proven to connect with our athletes and finds a way to be a very positive motivator. He wrapped up his second season with the MS basketball team and is always willing to help out with any of the sports EWA offers. Scott Canipe is this year's Head Coach of the Year. 


Congratulations to all our teams and winners this year!
