Morgan Bailey, Stewartville's girls varsity soccer coach, has been named Region 1A Coach of the Year. Tim Malone, athletic and activities director for the Stewartville School District, introduced Bailey to the School Board last week, saying Bailey has done a fantastic job with the girls soccer program. "She really has it pointed in the right direction," Malone said. Bailey said she's uncomfortable with praise. "I try to avoid any type of recognition," she told the School Board. "I'm the coach. The girls are on the field doing the work." Bailey has coached girls varsity soccer in Stewartville seven years. She thanked her players for buying in to her program. "They're the ones orchestrating the things on the field," she said. "I'd also like to thank the parents for the countless hours they've spent taking the girls to our games." Belinda Selfors, superintendent, praised Bailey as well, saying Bailey has "completely rebranded" Stewartville's girls soccer program. "I really appreciate all the hard work you've put into it," Selfors told Bailey.
