Coach Manore: WeCOACH Lifetime Achievement Award

WeCOACH, with partners Hudl and Jostens, are proud to announce the 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award recipients. This prestigious award is presented to women in sports who succeed at the highest levels in their respective careers, while also displaying an unwavering commitment, pioneering spirit, and trailblazing leadership to empower and pave the way for girls and women in all sports and levels to breakthrough for many generations to come.

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX this year, we recognize and honor three deserving Lifetime Achievement Award recipients: Coach Nikki Franke, recently retired Temple University Women's Fencing Head Coach, Coach Carol Hutchins, recently retired University of Michigan Softball Head Coach, and Coach Jodi Manore, Bedford High School (Michigan) Varsity Girls Volleyball Head Coach.

All three recipients of this year’s award will be formally recognized during the 2022 Break Through Summit on Friday, December 16 in Omaha, Nebraska.

“It is only fitting that as part of our Title IX at 50 celebration, we are honoring three longtime, highly successful women coaches who are the epitome of what Title IX has meant to so many women in sports. Coach Franke, Coach Hutchins, and Coach Manore have not only won a lot of contests in their careers, they have established holistic program cultures for other coaches to emulate. What’s even more remarkable is the lifelong impact they have had on the many, many student-athletes they have coached. They are leaders, they are role models, and their legacies are forever cemented. WeCOACH is grateful these three coaches are a part of our Community, and we are thrilled to honor them for their inspirational achievements,” said Vanessa Fuchs, WeCOACH CEO.
