Boyer Named NHHS Coach of the Year
Written by 2016-2017 Captain Jackie Singer

Coach Amanda Boyer was honored as the Newport Harbor High School Coach of the Year at the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce Athletic Awards Dinner on Thursday. Coach Boyer was celebrated because of her hard work and dedication to the field hockey program. During the past ten years of coaching field hockey, Amanda has positively influenced hundreds of Newport Harbor student athletes. This year, despite not having a home field,  Amanda was able to foster a “go with the flow” mentality that extended throughout the program. Busing to practices and games, Coach Boyer was able to make our ‘home’ games at Huntington Beach High School feel like home by bringing dirt in a jar from Davidson field. She worked hard to maintain a positive environment within the team and was able to coach this year’s team to victory in the Tournament of Champions! Not only is Coach Amanda Boyer able to get the league and TOC results her team is striving for, but more importantly she creates a warm, encouraging, and fun environment where the girls look forward to working hard and having fun after school. Coach Boyer challenges her players to push themselves to work at their personal best to not only bring up their own level of play but the team’s as well.  Coach Boyer leads by example. She is a role model for not only the field hockey girls, but all student athletes at Newport Harbor High School. Congratulations Coach Boyer!

    Amanda Boyer runs the best athletic program at Harbor High. This recognition is long overdue. Year after year, she does an excellent job of team building and developing a culture of positive team spirit in the girls she coaches. Amanda fosters the love of field hockey in all her players. So much, many of her former players go on to play in college. She continues to keep close contact with her players and she has even traveled to see them play at their schools.
    Congratulations Amanda! Thank you for being such an inspiration and positive role model to our daughters.
    Go Sailors!
