Kodiak’s Amy Fogle is closer to being named the best girls high school basketball coach in the nation.

Fogle was the top vote-getter in Alaska in the USA Today High School Sports’ “Best Of” series contest for girls basketball coach and advances to the regional round. Voting for the regional round starts at 8 a.m. today and ends on March 4.

Each state winner, plus the Washington D.C. winner and two wild cards from the state round advanced to the regional round.

Regional winners and two wild cards move on to the national round from March 5-12.

Fogle received 5,120 votes, well ahead of her competitors Wasilla’s Jeannie Herbert-Truax (45 votes), Dimond’s Jim Young (17 votes), Juneau’s Dee Boster (17 votes) and Hutchison’s Jenny Benson (12 votes). The state round ended Monday.

Fogle has guided Kodiak to a 20-0 overall record (8-0 in the Northern Lights Conference) in her first season back with the girls. She previously coached the girls for three and a half seasons. She also coached the boys to an eight-year record of 120-70 and captured the 2001 4A state title with a 28-0 record.

The athletic department of the winning coach receives $2,000 and a banner.
