Chambers, Cotton earn NCC track coaches of year honors

The Huntington North Vikings captured two North Central Conference titles this spring, both in track.

Which then makes for no surprise that both track coaches, Clark Chambers, for the boys, and Don Cotton, for the girls, are being honored as NCC track coaches of the year.

"It's a very nice award to receive from your peers," says Chambers. "But with that being said, I had very little to do with it. My assistant coaches are fabulous ... they make my job easy."
