In recognition of their extraordinary success in 2012, Bloomfield School officials recognized coaches from the district’s football and track and field programs as coaches of the year.
Bloomfield head football coach Mike Carter was honored for leading his team to the state championship where the team lost a tough battle against neighboring Montclair.
“To be in front of Giants stadium, that was the thrill of a lifetime,” Carter said after the school board presented him with the award.
The school board also recognized Leo Inglima and Maureen Moore for leading the boys and girls cross country teams to continued success. Moore took the occasion to marvel at how far the program had come in a short time.
“Four years ago, Millburn and Livingston walked right by us,” Moore said. “Now they’re walking up to us and shaking our hands.”
