Conant boys soccer head coach Tom Harvey was named NHIAA Division III Coach of the Year, as announced last week.
Harvey led the Orioles to a 12-3-2 record and the No. 4 seed in the playoffs, the team’s highest seeding ever, Harvey said.
The Orioles beat Saint Thomas Aquinas in the first round of the tournament before losing to the eventual champs, Trinity High School, in penalty kicks in the quarterfinal round.
“Look at the two seasons that we had: last year and this year. That has never been done here,” Harvey said after the quarterfinal game. “I’m very proud of them. They had a great season.”
