La Jolla Country Day H.S./ESPNHSBamford is one of the most respected coaches in the history of the CIF San Diego Section.Her team might have fallen just short of No. 1, but dominant season still gains the program a prestigious honor. Other coaches of the year have been selected for each CIF division.
Prior to the beginning of the season, many felt coach Terri Bamford of La Jolla Country Day (La Jolla) had an excellent team, but not many had the Torreys pegged at No. 9 in the nation or No. 2 in the state, which is where they ended up in the POWERADE FAB 50 and the Cal-Hi Sports overall top 40.
Now, after 13 seasons at the helm of the small private school near UC San Diego, Bamford has been named the 40th ESPNHS Cal-Hi Sports Girls State Coach of the Year. She is the first from the CIF San Diego Section to be selected for the honor since the late Lee Trepanier from Point Loma in 1987.
