Brinkema is Coach of the Year
Holyoke girls swimming coach Aly Brinkema is clearly admired by her student-athletes at HHS.
It was a well-deserved honor when she was named Coach of the Year for the Tri-Valley Conference at the end of the conference meet on Saturday.
Coaches are nominated and voted upon by their fellow coaches at the meet.
Humbly acknowledging the recognition she received as Coach of the Year, Brinkema said, “I work with a wonderful league of coaches who all put their girls first.”
