Tom Butterfield was honored Thursday, May 14, 2015, at the Connecticut High School Coaches Association 51st Awards Banquet.

Butterfield was selected as Coach of the Year in Cross Country. He retired after the fall season as Hall’s Cross Country coach after 22 years as head coach.

Butterfield had a coaching career that spanned 53 years. Following Hall runner Ari Klau’s second place finish at the New England Cross Country Championships last fall, Butterfield said he had decided to postpone retirement for four more years just to remain with the team’s current group of seniors.

“When they were freshman I knew they had potential,” Butterfield said. “New Englands is big time,” he said of the group that he considers his “best overall” team.
