    The Wyoming Coaches Association and National High School Athletic Coaches Association announced Monday that two Wyoming coaches have been selected for induction to the National High School Coaches Hall of Fame.

    Lander Valley High School golf coach Terry Berg and Rawlins volleyball coach Sandy Jebens are this year’s recipients.


    They’ll both be inducted in June during the NHSACA convention in Bismark, North Dakota.

    Berg began his coaching career at LVHS in 1976 after receiving a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wyoming in P.E. and Industrial Arts. He’d been the head golf coach at Lander Valley High School for 41 years and a member of the Wyoming Coaches Association for 45 years.  He retired in 2016. 

    Terry has been the WCA Golf Coach of the Year 9 times, an All-Star coach 5 times, NFICA National Golf Coach of the Year (2001), and NHSACA Golf Coach of the Year in 2014. Obviously, he enjoys his golfing, but also likes woodworking and spending ‘snowbird’ time in Arizona with his family.  

    Jebens began coaching in 1980 and holds an overall volleyball varsity record of 554 wins to just 246 losses. Her teams have won 12 conference titles, 11 regional championships, 7 state runner-ups, and 3 state championships. She has also coached basketball and track at Rawlins. Currently, he serves as the Activities Director at Rawlins High School and Rawlins Middle School.
