EDISON, NJ — Westfield High School head volleyball coach Beverly Torok was given the Sports Award for girls volleyball this week during the New Jersey Sate Interscholastic Athletic Association’s Sports Award Recognition Program at Pines Manor.
The award reads: In grateful recognition of service and contributions in interscholastic athletics.
“I am honored to have been selected for this award,” Torok said. “I was in the presence of many athletes and coaches with outstanding credentials. It was nice to have been among them.”
Torok has coached at WHS since 1995. Her teams won the Union County Championships five times and were the state finalist in 2002. Her career volleyball record is 358-148. She is a member of the NJSIAA’s executive board and president of the New Jersey Scholastic Coaches Association.
“I would like to thank the administration of the Westfield school district and high school, who have allowed me to serve on these committees and who have encouraged the coaching staff to be involved and active in our sports; Sandy Mamary, our supervisor of athletics, who supports the extra work that we all put into our work with our student athletes to make each of us stronger,” Torok said.
“I would also like to thank my parents, George and Clara Torok, who have given my siblings and I a valuable and strong work ethic,” she said. “I would also like to thank those coaches who have paved the way and made changes to make athletics what it was for me and what I try to make it for those I teach and coach.”
