Cross Country & Track Head Coach Mark Oftedal Named 2A Gold Star Coach

The Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) has instituted an annual Gold Star Coach award that recognizes coaches who lead by example in creating a positive and competitive environment throughout their programs, inspiring students to strive for success in all aspects of their lives by modeling for them how to work hard, be self-disciplined, be a leader, and serve others.

We are proud to announce that our head cross country and track coach, Mark Oftedal, was named the Gold Star Coach recipient from Rowland Hall this year. And, even more exciting, Coach Oftedal was selected as the 2A Gold Star Coach of Coach of the Year, chosen from all 2A school Gold Star Coach recipients!

Coach Oftedal has consistently been a positive and influential role model for the cross country and track teams for the past 17 years, and his efforts during his tenure have helped lead both teams to numerous region and state team and individual championships. More importantly, Mark is a fantastic role model for our student-athletes, and he always goes the extra mile to provide a quality and personalized experience for all who participate in our cross country and track and field programs.

Congratulations on this prestigious honor, Mark!
