David and Brit Daugharthy met while coaching Iola High School track and field. Their relationship has been bonded by high school sports ever since.
While the couple also coach other sports, it’s track that brought them together.
“She’s a distance coach and I’m a sprints coach,” said David. “It was our first year coaching together and I thought she was attractive. After the season ended, I asked her out and she said no. A year later when COVID happened, she reached out to me knowing I would have no other interest.”
