News and Announcements
Tonight we are honoring Coach Tom Sucher as the first recipient of the Tom Sucher Ambassador Award. The Tom Sucher Ambassador Award will be an annual award that will honor a different person each year who has had a positive impact on the South basketball community through their efforts on and off the court in an effort to make South basketball as successful as it can be.
Coach Sucher started teaching here at South when the school opened in 1976 and retired from South in 2007. During those 30 plus years, he coached golf, water polo and basketball. He was a coach in the basketball program from 1976-1991, and again from 1996-2005. He served as the head coach of the program for 6 years, from 1999-2005.
During his time coaching basketball, Coach Sucher was a positive influence for his players on and off the court, and in fact has coached 3 of our current coaches while they were in high school. It is with great honor that we award this plaque to Coach Tom Sucher for all his efforts to make South basketball a great program.
