Greg Hansen names the Top 20 sports figures of 2020, including 5 Lancer alumni and coaches.

No. 5: Jim Reynolds
Jim is the men's basketball coach at Salpointe Catholic. In 2020, he directed the Lancers to a 30-1 record and the first state championship in school history, which dates to the early 1950s.

No. 9: Bijan Robinson '20
Breaking into the starting lineup for Texas as a true freshman, the Salpointe Catholic career rushing leader led the Longhorns with 520 rushing yards, was fifth in receiving with 13 catches and first in all-purpose offense.

No. 12: Mike Urbanski '66
Making history, Urbanski coached both the Salpointe Catholic men's and women's cross country teams to the state championships in the fall, the first time a coach had done so in the same season in Tucson history. Urbanski's women's championship was led by sophomore Kylie Wild who won the Division III state title, winning all but one of her races over the course of the shortened season.

No. 17: Heather Moore Martin
Coaching Salpointe Catholic women's volleyball team to its third state championship since 2016, Moore-Martin directed an upset over favored Scottsdale Notre Dame Prep in the state finals, finishing the season 18-2.

No. 18: Augie Busch '94
Arizona's third-year swimming coach guided the Wildcats to the No. 2 finish in the Pac-12 men's finals, the first time since 1996 that the California bloc of USC/UCLA/Standford/Cal did not sweep the top two places in the Pac-12 finals.
