(ABC 6 News) – The Mabel-Canton Cougars are a perennial contender in Class A volleyball—their longtime head coach is a big reason why they’re so consistent on a yearly basis.
On Thursday, the Minnesota Volleyball Coaches Association has named Mabel-Canton head coach Lonnie Morken the Class A Coach of the Year.
This past season, Morken’s Cougars won 30 games and finished two set wins short of their first Class A state tournament berth since 2001.
Morken is one of 12 coaches in Minnesota high school volleyball state history to win at least 600 games as a head coach.
