Webster County boys’ basketball coach Jon Newton and girls’ coach Parker McCalister have been selected as the 2013 KABC Coaches of the Year by their colleagues in Region 2.
Coach Newton will be formally presented his award on Friday, March 8, at half time of the second game of the afternoon session of the Sweet “16” State Tournament in Lexington. The Trojans had to replace several players including all five starters from last year’s District championship team but haven’t missed a beat.
