McIntosh coaches earn statewide honors


As their collection of championship trophies grow, two McIntosh High coaches added statewide coaching honors to their resumes. The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Coaches Association has named Wendy Mabon and Bunky Colvin as recipients of prestigious state coaching awards for the 2020-21 school year.

Wendy Mabon is the South Section Volleyball Coach of the Year. In November 2020, Mabon’s Chiefs bested Blessed Trinity to win an unprecedented fourth-straight state volleyball championship and sixth in program history.

Bunky Colvin is the South Section Boy’s Soccer Coach of the Year. In May 2021, Colvin’s boys soccer team beat Johnson High 2-1 for their 8th state soccer championship. Along with hoisting another championship trophy, the win over Johnson was Colvin’s 400th career victory.

Coaches were selected based up on their team’s performance in the 2020-21 school year, lifetime community involvement, school involvement, and philosophy of coaching, and they are nominated by their state association.
