Today is the last day fans have to vote for two Dodge County Coaches in a nationwide contest. Beaver Dam Girls Basketball Coach Tim Chase and Dodgeland Track and Cross Country Coach Kevin Klueger are among 15 finalists for the US Cellular Most Valuable Coach Program. The top coaches were selected based on the positive impacts they have on their players, school and city as well as their leadership qualities. Chase has just under four-percent of the voting, good for seventh place, while Klueger has close to two-percent which places him at fifteenth. Fans can go to www.TheMostValuableCoach.com to cast their ballot.
The three finalists will receive donations of $10-thousand, $20-thousand and $50-thousand dollars respectively. The first place coach will also be awarded a Samsung tech prize package valued at $30-thousand dollars. The winners will be announced on November 20.
