ATLANTA – The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) has selected Jeff Sink of Brea Olinda High School (Brea, Calif.) as the 2010 RUSSELL ATHLETIC/WBCA National High School Coach of the Year. This year marks the 21st year that this accolade has been presented and selected by the WBCA since 1990. With receiving this prestigious award comes the honor of serving as a head coach at the WBCA High School All-America Game presented by Nike on Saturday, April 3, 2010, at the Alamodome.
Sink is exceptional at teaching his players the fundamentals. Watching the Ladycats is seeing fundamental basketball. But Sink doesn’t stop there: he’s also an expert at motivating the athletes and getting them to believe they can achieve. Last year they won a California state title when no one thought they would, and part of the reason was that they defeated Mater Dei in the process. Two months ago, Brea beat the Monarchs again. I’ve not seen a more pumped up, excited team than the Ladycats were that night in a long time.
Congratulations, Coach Sink, and good job.
