Coach of the Year
Like his talented crew of distance runners, Sobocinski never stopped working. He overcame injuries and absences throughout the season by developing depth and versatility which led to Lehman’s 7-0 season.

And when the postseason rolled around, the Black Knights were ready — shrugging off some difficult weather that limited teams through mid-season. Lehman finished third in the District 2 Class 2A standings with two gold medals, and their 3,200 relay team placed at states for the second straight season.
