School administrators Garland Hudson II of South Bend Washington, Pat Mapes of Perry Township Schools and Tom Black of East Central will be recognized with special awards for 2022 from the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.

The three administrators -- Hudson is athletic director at South Bend Washington, Mapes is superintendent of Perry Township Schools and Black is principal of East Central -- will be honored as Administrators of the Year from the IBCA. Each is being recognized for his support of programs in his school or school corporation. There is one winner from each IHSAA district. Hudson is the honoree from District 1. Mapes is cited from District 2. Black is the recipient from District 3.

This is the 14th time in the past 15 years that the IBCA has recognized a group of administrators with a set of awards. The awards have been presented since 2008, but the 2020 honorees received their awards in 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. No winners were named in 2021. A list of winners from over the years is at the bottom of this announcement.

Hudson, Mapes and Black will receive their awards on April 22 during the 2022 IBCA Clinic at Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis. For more information about the IBCA, go to
