In the Northern Conference, QE went an impressive 13-3 during the regular season, locking up the #4 seed and a Coach of the Year award for Metcalf. Getting the best from standout performer Elijah W has also been a plus, with the talented guard enjoyed an ABL 2nd best 31.8 efficiency this year to go with a league leading 34.3ppg.
“I think you could look at every coach in our division this season and make a case for them to win this award,” said Mr Metcalf. “When you go away to fixtures and see the impact this group of coaches have on their players and their communities, it makes me very proud to be able to represent that group with this award.”
This is Mr Metcalf’s fifth full-time year at QE and prior to that he worked here part-time for one year. Initially, Mr Metcalf was a Basketball Coach and was promoted to Lead Basketball Coach in 2018. He told us “as nice as it is to win the award, it is far more rewarding to see our players go on to further success when they leave and see how much they develop during their time at QE”.
