Sandra L Clary, Vermont – 2009
A graduate of the University of Vermont, Sandra Clary has been involved in girls’ sports for over 36 years. As a physical education and health teacher at Windsor Jr/Sr High School, Sandra has coached varsity softball and basketball in the past, and continues to coach varsity field hockey. She is certified by the ASEP (American Sport Education Program) and a member of the Vermont Field Hockey Coaches’ Association.
Deciding to create a schedule that was challenging, Sandra’s field hockey team competes in a division higher than what is dictated by her school’s enrollment – being the smallest school in division II. This adds a special satisfaction to their successful program and the 4 state championships Windsor has won under Coach Clary.
Sandra’s family bond is very strong and she adds that she is “extremely proud to have shared two separate championships with my two nieces.”
