UCLA head coach Sue Enquist, Michigan head coach Carol Hutchins and former Eastern Connecticut State head coach Clyde Washburne were enshrined into the NFCA Hall of Fame Friday evening to cap the final full day of the 2006 NFCA National Convention at the J.W. Marriott Starr Pass Resort in Tucson, Ariz.
The trio of coaching greats was honored along with the national coaching staffs of the year during the annual Speedline Coaching Staff of the Year/ NFCA Hall of Fame banquet.
Friday saw the conclusion of the exhibit show, while hitting analyst Mike Epstein and Detroit Tigers hitting coach Don Slaught led off the second day of speakers that also included Club K owner Cheri Kempf, Frozen Ropes Training Center director Tony Abbatine and United States Olympic gold medalist Laura Berg.
The convention saw another outstanding turnout, as 855 trekked into the “Valley of the Sun” for the 2006 convention.
