Additionally, Dale White, was named Men’s Coach of the Year. “It was a tough match,” said White. He said it was an especially sweet to win in his first year in charge of the program. “It was nice to get a state title with these guys.” GPC had been ranked No. 6 in the last national rankings; ABAC was No. 7.
