Lubbock ISD Diving Coach Penny DiPomazio has been selected as the 5A State Diving Coach of the Year by the Texas Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (TISCA). Coaches in the association nominate swimming or diving coaches after each season based on the season accomplishments of their athletes and their ongoing dedication to their sport. The TISCA executive board votes on the nominees at their annual spring meeting. This year, DiPomazio received the Girls and Boys District Coach of the Meet, Girls and Boys Regional Coach of the Meet, and the Girls State Coach of the Meet. This is her fourth time to receive this award. She has received the state coach of the year seven times (State Coach of the Meet two times, NISCA State Coach of the Year and TISCA State Coach of the Year four times). She will be recognized at next year's annual TISCA conference in September.
