Louisburg boys track and field coach Andy Wright was all smiles after winning the Class 4A state championship. He was recently named as the Class 4A Coach of the Year.

The Louisburg boys track and field team had an historical 2021 season as the Wildcats won their second-ever state track championship.

A couple months later, the Wildcat team is reaping rewards from that special season – more specifically, Andy Wright.

Wright was named as the Class 4A Coach of the Year by the Kansas Cross Country and Track and Field Coaches Association. He guided the Wildcats to their first state track title in 10 years.

“Receiving the 4A Coach of the Year was is an absolutely incredible honor,” Wright said. “But I feel like this award really is a credit to the athletes and the entire coaching staff. The athletes were absolutely amazing to work with, and the coaching staff did a fantastic job of having each athlete prepared to do their best.
