Chuck Daly Coach of the Year
Bob Tingley, Coudersport
Tingley led Coudersport to a 23-4 record, the NTL title, the District 9 Class 1A title and the PIAA Class 1A quarterfinals this season. The Lady Falcons upset three-time defending champion North Clarion in the D9 championship game and then won a pair of PIAA playoff games to advance to the quarterfinals where they were scheduled to play District 10 champion Kennedy Catholic when the COVID-19 pandemic brought a sudden end to the season.
Making it more impressive was the fact Coudersport had just one player average in double digits this season and had to replace its leading scorer from a year ago, Shae Black.
The Lady Falcons won their final 11 games on the season.
