RUGBY, N.D. - Rugby’s Bill Jansen was recently named National Girls Track & Field Coach of the Year by the National High School Athletic Coaches Association.

“We’ve got such great support in Rugby, and without that you don’t have the success or do the things we’ve done,” said Jansen.

Jansen also credited the assistant coaching staff and added how special it is for Rugby to also have the 2014 National Boys Track & Field Coach of the Year Scott Grochow in the fold.

Jansen’s father, William, won the same award for Valley City in 1979.
