Academic All-State Awards

Assistant Coach of the Year

The IGCA would like to announce that coach Lee Brecht had been named the Softball Assistant Coach of the Year. Coach Brecht has been Jim Flaws's assistant coach for the entire 30 years and is crucial in the overall success of Carlisle's softball program. He works tirelessly with kids from middle school on up through varsity and is instrumental in their development within the system. Flaws and Brecht are a "team" and have won over 1000 victories together. Mr. Flaws would be the first to point out his assistant's supportive role and the importance of him. When Jim won his 1000th game earlier this year, he insisted Mr. Brecht be right there receiving the plaque with him. Mr. Brecht has given much to this program over the 30 years without much recognition. He does everything from teaching, to player development, to scouting, to umping lower levels during the day to driving the bus to all away games. This award is perfect for recognizing those who also devote themselves to the kids who play high school sports.  

Coach Brecht will be awarded a plaque commemorating this award at the IGCA Softball all-star game on July 25 at Waukee HS. 

Congratulations coach and thank you for your man your more than 3 decades of service to high school athletes in your district.
