Local athletic directors among those honored

The California State Athletic Directors Association just held its 46th annual conference in San Diego. More than 400 athletic directors were on hand and some locals were among those recognized.

Joe Marcos of Don Lugo was selected one of the Athletic Directors of the Year for the Southern Section. He has been at the school coaching since 1974 and has served as athletic director since 1999.

Mike Hinkle of Chino and John McGaha of Garey were among the four winners of the Norm McKenzie “Rookie of the Year” award for those who have held the position less than five years.

A couple others honored are slightly out of the Bulletin’s coverage area but lets get their names out there – Matt LeDuc of Northview and Rod Tilton of Glendora.
Any award recognizing an athletic administrator is well deserved. Those individuals spend countless hours attending sporting events and tending to administrative work, oftentimes at the expense of family time.
