BISMARCK, N.D. — La Cueva High’s Frank Castillo was honored as 2019 national boys basketball coach of the year Wednesday by the National High School Athletic Coaches Association. He was recognized at the NHSACA banquet and convention.

Castillo was nominated for the national honor by coaches in New Mexico and was picked from eight finalist nominees. The selection was based on “longevity, service to high school athletics, honors, championship years, and winning percentage,” according to the NHSACA.
