NFHS Coach of the Year
NFHS Coach of the YearRachel Matakas, Valley Vista High School teacher and coach, was named the 2017-2018 Arizona Coach of the Year for Girls Basketball by the National Federation of State and High School Associations (NFHS).  Matakas was nominated by the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) for her leadership abilities, role in shaping student athletes, and positive contributions to the community.

Matakas began her journey as math teacher and girls basketball coach at Valley Vista High School in 2006.

“Coach Matakas has brought respect to athletics in the Northwest Valley,” said Principal Bobbie Lockhart. “She works endlessly for the betterment of not only her program, but Valley Vista High School and the Dysart Unified School District.”

Coach Matakas led her team to back-to-back 6A state championships in 2017 and 2018 and the team is currently ranked #1 in the Southwest bracket for 2019.  
“Coach Matakas is 100% devoted to her team and their development as a team of character and honor,” said athletic director, Brad Larremore.  “She cares about each individual player and their future. Her energy and commitment are unrivaled.”

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) serves its members by providing leadership for the administration of education-based high school athletics and activities through the writing of playing rules that emphasize health and safety, educational programs that develop leaders, and administrative support to increase opportunities and promote sportsmanship.


The AIA is a voluntary association of public and private high schools which was established by and is responsible to its members. The mission of the AIA is to create and sustain an ethical culture through activities that encourages maximum student participation by providing AIA member schools with an even playing field to ensure fair and equitable competition in interscholastic activities.
