Sheila Darrah, Vermont – 2002
Sheila has been a teacher of physical education and coach of girls’ basketball softball, field hockey, and of co-ed golf for thirty years. In recent years, her coaching has primarily focused on co-ed golf.

In 1991, boys’ varsity golf made the finals and in 1999 and 2000, the girls’ varsity golf made the finals.
Sheila was the Vermont State Women’s Golf Champion in 1981, 1982, and 1984. She was recognized by the Vermont Athletic Conference for 25 years of excellence in coaching.
