Congratulations coach Tom Andersen, coach of the Eastern Wyoming College Lady Lancers’ basketball team, for being voted Coach of the Year for the South Subregion 9.
What a breath of fresh air coach Andersen is – a truly great example of what a coach should be – positive, encouraging and caring for his team. You could see it was about his team as a team and as individuals. It was not about him.
Tom is humble and soft-spoken, which is not seen very often in the day and age of “athletics.” He is living proof you don’t have to be a raving maniac to be a great coach.
By the way, the Lady Lancers’ basketball team broke a school record with 21 wins – congratulations girls. I believe coach Anderson and coach Koel were instrumental in bringing this team together, weaving the different backgrounds and personalities to gel a group of girls that put team first and differences behind. The girls seemed to have fun and were happy. What a blessing for all.
Just learned that Jai Chandler and Brittany Cross made the All Region 9 team for the regular season. Way to go girls – fantastic and congratulations.
Thank you coach Anderson, coach Koel and you Lady Lancers for a tremendous year – a team that was truly a joy to watch.
Grandma of a Lady Lancer,
