When it comes to life, love and sport, Kay Morris has a knack for running into relationships. Morris places those relationships above winning and was awarded the State cross-country Assistant Coach of the Year honors for both.


"The relationships that I've built are my favorite part of coaching," she said. "That's what I like more than the winning."
