Sean Brosnan-Coach '19 Boys National Champs

Interview with Sean Brosnan conducted Sept. 28, 2020 in advance of the Newbury Park Athletic Club's trip to the Phoenix area to compete in the Desert Twilight XC Festival. In 2019, Brosnan coached both the boys and the girls to CIF-State Division II titles and the boys to a narrow victory over Great Oak for the team national title. In this interview, Brosnan says the 2020 version of his boys team is better than the 2019 version that included perhaps the best 1-2 punch in state history in Nico Young and Jace Aschbrenner. Brosnan discusses the development of the boys team, status of the girls team, and challenges to coaching during the COVID-19 shutdown that began in mid-March.
