Mr. Dalton Named VIC Coach of the Year!

leave a comment »

We are excited to announce that Michael Dalton has been named Coach of the Year by the VIC. Mr. Dalton has been growing the tennis program for seven years, ever since he started teaching at the Miller School of Albemarle. He says that each year the teams have improved and grown stronger, which is evidenced by their 6 and 2 conference record and their 7 and 3 standing going into states. This is the third year in a row where the tennis team has made conference and the second year in a row that the team has made it to the semi-finals.

Mr. Dalton says that he tries to approach coaching from a less intense direction; keeping the kids grounded and relaxed, he believes, allows them to play better. “I like to stay calm and let the kid feel the match. Encouraging and remaining composed allows them to enjoy what they are doing and often win. I love every team I’ve coached, and this year’s is no exception, they’ve been strong and worked hard.”

This year’s team includes two All Conference players, which will be announced during Miller School’s awards ceremony this week.

Congratulations Mr. Dalton, it’s obvious that you have been strong and worked hard too!
