Terra Vista Coach Named Middle School Track Coach of the Year

Each year the Texas Girls Coaches Association, TGCA, accepts nominations for Coaches of the Year awards to celebrate and highlight hard-working coaches across Texas. Being nominated and selected as a Texas Coach of the Year is an honor.  

This year Terra Vista Middle School Girls Athletics Coach, Megan Young was named the 5A-6A Track and Field Middle School Coach of the Year after receiving a nomination for her fellow coaches.  

Young is wrapping up her 19th year in education and her tenth at TVMS. She graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Sport Science and Psychology in 2002 and earned a Master of Science degree in Sport and Exercise Psychology in 2004. In 2010, she completed a Master of Education degree in School Counseling from Lubbock Christian University.   

This year Young helped to lead the TVMS track team to placing 4th at the city track meet with several individuals placing in the top three of their events. She stated that this year was challenging but rewarding to see the hard work of her athletes.  

“This year was a mix of challenges and successes for TVMS girls' athletics,” said Young. We faced very good competition throughout the year, but with challenges comes growth and it has been really good for our athletes to face a little adversity so they can push through and become better athletes and better people.” 

Young was awarded the 5A-6A Track and Field Middle School Coach of the Year because of her dedication to the sport and her ability to motivate and encourage her athletes. Terra Vista is proud to have Young on their coaching staff.  

Young stated she is thankful for the nomination from her fellow coaches and for the TGCA for honoring her with a middle school coach of the year award. 

“It means so much to me to be named the 5A/6A Middle School Track Coach of the Year because track is my favorite sport to coach,” said Young. “It is not an easy sport, and it requires patience and not letting them give up on themselves on our part as coaches, but it is so rewarding to see them push through difficulties to beat personal bests and have success at meets because of their hard work.”
