Carson High School English Teacher Jason Macy has been selected by the U.S. Track & Field & Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) as the 2023 Girls High School Cross Country Coach of the Year for the state of Nevada.

The honor was based upon Macy’s leadership and success of the cross country team throughout the season. It was also a reflection of his hard work and dedication for the student-athletes, the coaching staff and the administration of the school.

The USTFCCCA High School Coach of the Year Award Program is proudly sponsored by the United States Marine Corps. Started in 2014, the program recognizes the best high school boys’ and girls’ coaches, at both the state and national levels, in cross country and track & field. A boys’ and girls’ coach from each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia are chosen at the end of each respective season as state-by-state winners – from there, those 102 honorees are vetted, and two national awards are selected.

The USTFCCCA is a non-profit professional organization representing cross country and track & field coaches. The organization has more than 11,000 coaching members, encompassing NCAA track & field and cross country programs of all divisions, the NAIA, the NJCAA and several state high school track & field and cross country coaches’ associations.

Additionally, Coach Macy was recognized by the North Region 5A Athletic directors & Administrators as the 2023-2024 Coach of the Year. He previously earned the same honor in 2022-2023 and 2000-2001.

Carson High girls cross country won their second straight Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) 5A Team State Title, Nov. 4, 2023, at Rancho San Rafael Park in Reno. The girls defended the title, with five runners finishing in the top 10.
