Coaching Staff

Scott Monnard (smonnard@norman.k12.ok.us):  Coach Monnard begins his 23rd season at Norman High School, and will serve as both the boys and girls head cross country coach.  He is currently a teacher at Alcott Middle School, and oversees the junior high program at Alcott & Irving Middle Schools.   A graduate of NHS and four-year letterman for the Tigers, Monnard also serves as the head coach for both the boys and girls NHS track and field programs.  As a coach, he has been part of two state championship teams (2011 & 2017) and five state runner-up teams (2000, 2010, 2013, 2015, 2016).  What he enjoys most about coaching is help provide an environment where kids can be successful, along with building relationships with the kids at a young age and watching them mature and becoming great representatives of the program, school, and community.  In his free time, he enjoys working in the yard, spending time at the lake, traveling, and running.  After spending seven years in the U.S. Marine Corps, Monnard earned his degree from the University of Oklahoma in Political Science.  Coach Monnard is mysteriously single with no kids.

Emily Bonner (ebonner@mac.com):  Coach Bonner is beginning her fifth season at Norman High School as an assistant for both girls and boys teams.  Coach Bonner ran for a small high school in Pennsylvania and then ran cross country and track for Haverford College in Philadelphia, PA, where she was an NCAA Div III All-American in the 1500 meters.  After college, she taught physics, biology and life science and coached cross country and track for 5 years until she took a break to build her own personal team of kids ages 6-15.  What Coach Bonner enjoys most about coaching is the opportunity to help develop these awesome scholar-athletes into strong and kind adults.  This is Coach Bonner’s dream job, and she is honored to have it!  In her minimal spare time, she likes to spend time singing and making music with her family.
