Tom Cassetty Named USTFCCCA NH Cross Country Coach of the Year
NASHUA, N.H. – It was recently announced that Bishop Guertin’s Tom Cassetty has been named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association 2021 New Hampshire Boys High School Coach of the Year.
Cassetty helped the Cardinals to a state title this past fall, the fifth in school history and the first for the boys since 2011.
Just a week after leading BG to the New Hampshire Division I crown, the Cards claimed the team title at the 2021 Meet of Champions on the Mines Falls Course in Nashua by the slimmest of margins. Tied with Coe-Brown through the five scoring runners, Bishop Guertin was victorious thanks to winning the sixth-place tiebreaker, demonstrating the depth of Cassetty’s squad and earning a spot at the New England Championships.
One boys coach and one girls coach from 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, were honored for their successes during the fall of 2021, as selected by a committee of experts from around the nation.
State-by-state winners were selected based on their teams’ performances throughout the 2021 cross country season. Among the factors taken into consideration were team score and placement at the state championships, margin of victory, performance against rankings if available, individual championships, and how their teams’ performances stacked up to previous years (e.g. first title in school history, consecutive titles, etc.).
Congratulations to Coach Cassetty on this prestigious honor.
