Fenwick High School girls basketball coach, Dave Power, was named National Coach of the Year by EA Sports, a sports software company.

Power coached the Friars to a Class AA State championship this year and a 36-2 overall record.

Power, who in 2005 was inducted into the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame, will start the 2007-’08 season with 706 career victories. Power also coached Fenwick to a state championship in ’01, and Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1987.

“This honor really belongs to the players and to the administration at Fenwick High School. They are the real champions,” said Power.
