P.E. teacher Dustin Nygaard ended his tenure as boys golf coach following the conclusion of the spring 2018 season.

“I just stepped down from the position, and I’m going to be an assistant coach working with Shane [Kennedy] on the girls varsity soccer team next season,” Nygaard said.

Nygaard coached the boys golf team for five years. In previous years he has also coached boys varsity soccer, girls varsity soccer, and girls varsity golf, for eight, three, and one years respectively.

In February of this year he was one of 13 high school coaches across California to receive the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Model Coach award, for “positive role modeling, leadership, and school community service,” according to the CIF website.

“It’s been an honor and a privilege to work with so many great kids and it’s always nice to get that positive feedback,” Nygaard said.

“[Nygaard receiving the award] shows that all of our coaches are on the same page in terms of philosophy around athletics and across sports,” athletic director Christina Amoroso said. “It means that our students are noticing good quality coaching because they are the ones writing these letters of support for their coaches to be nominated and then recognized.”
